With most of the aid organisations having left Beira, Casa Reom is at the centre of efforts to support the people of Beira recover from Cyclone Idai.
After Cyclone Idai hit Beira in March 2019, Casa Reom where among the first organisations to respond. Because we have an established network with good local links, the YWAM staff were able to mobilise on the day the cyclone struck and have a significant role in the international response to the crisis. Casa Reom Trust launched the CycloneAppeal within days and we had an amazing response from supporters and people concerned to help. Within the folloiwng weeks the money raised was already being used to provide emergency aid while may other charities were only beginning their fund-raising appeals.
Read more about what was achieved as well as the ongoing work to help local people in Beira now that many of the relief organisations have left the area.
Casa Reom Trust wants to help more but we are currently facing a shortage of general funds to support the ongoing work of Casa Reom. Would you be willing to support us on a regular basis? It is easy to set up a standing order from your bank account to help make a diference.
During the past month 7 families whose homes were destroyed by cyclone Idai have received the keys for their new houses. This YWAM project, managed by staff at Casa Reom, is showing the people of Beira a method of building stronger homes. The families who will live in these homes now have a new start and fresh hope for the future.

On Wednesday 1st April, the president of Mozambique declared a state of emergency in the country for 30 days to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
It is not a full lock-down but schools are closed and the Casa-Reom gates have been shut and the boys are finding other ways to entertain themselves.
They have plenty supplies and also received a donation of new mattresses. The closure still allows Oliveira and other staff to visit.
