On the 15th of March 2019, Geraldine Beaujean, an employee of Maastricht University - SHE Collaborates, survived one of the biggest natural disasters in history: hurricane Idai. This cyclone killed hundreds of people in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. Geraldine got caught in the cyclone while visiting the Universidade Católica de Moçambique in Beira. Therefore, she saw with her very own eyes the destruction that cyclone Idai had left behind.
Newly built classrooms are destroyed
The university in Beira is one of Maastricht University’s partners and it has been heavily damaged by the cyclone Idai. New and safe accommodation are now of the utmost importance since the rooftops of brand-new classrooms have been destroyed by fallen trees. Help us to give the university in Beira a good start of their academic year!
To help rebuild our partner university and to enable them to provide education again €20.000 is needed (in addition to the €20.000 that has been raised before). To do this, your help is extremely important. This crowdfunding campaign will only run until the 15th of July; exactly 5 months after this natural disaster took place. Care for Beira – give the students in Mozambique a safe academic environment and donate now!
