According to Nkunika, FDH has extended its relief support showing their concern on the effects of the cyclone.

“As an institution, we are also affected as our employees, and their families are affected in various ways and we have halted business in our various outlets to protect life first,” said Nkunika.

Nkunika stated that FDH will be working with local governments and nongovernmental organizations to ensure that the most affected are assisted with speed.

“We hope that this package contributes towards the resource mobilization by authorities as we respond to this state of disaster,” Nkunika added.

The government has declared a state of disaster in most districts in the southern region following the Freddy Cyclone disaster, which has claimed over 100 lives and rendered thousands of people homeless.
