WHAT WE DO

2019 Mozambique Cyclone Idai & Kenneth

Panthera Charitable Foundation was established to support countries which have been affected by natural disasters, by providing supplies such as clothing, shoes and a range of dry goods in order to restore and normalise the day to day of those worst affected.

In March 2019 there was an enormous disaster that impacted Mozambique and parts of Southern Africa. There are currently 150,000 people being housed in warehouses after being rescued, with very little water, food and clothing, the situation is desperate.

The details of it’s impact are described below.

The town of Beira, in the Sofala Province was worst affected by Cyclone Idai, the worst tropical cyclone to affect Africa after it struck in March 2019, causing destruction and devastation, and affecting 1.5 million people.

Chakyl and Martina Camal quickly took action and started Panthera Charitable Foundation. They decided to donate a personal investment and fund the transportation of a container with second hand clothing (circa 15 tons – 100,000 clothing pieces – pictured below) which was distributed in Beira, Mozambique in May 2019.

The project continued and the Australian community gathered together to raise 21 tonnes worth of clothing, bedding, linen, shoes, books, toiletries and sanitary products. A second 40 foot container left Sydney in July 2019 and arrived in the port of Beira at the end of August 2019.

The team on the ground in Beira headed up by Kim Cruz and a number of volunteers sorted and packed over 900 kits which have since been distributed to over 10,000 people including orphanages, families and community centres.

GOAL : Our goal is to raise a total of 200 tons in approx. 10 containers by the end of 2020 from the Australian community and any other charitable entities in Australia that would support this cause.
