The Tropical Cylone «Enawo» raged over the island of Madagascar with winds of up to 290 km/h (180 mph). Helimission is supporting local and international aid organizations on site.

 

In Madagascar, Cyclone “Enawo” has killed at least 78 people and injured a further 250. An estimated

400,000 people living on the East African island have been affected by this intense storm. Many people have been cut off from the outside world and can only be reached by helicopter.
 
Last week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the cyclone swept over Madagascar with winds of up to 290 km/h (180 mph).  On Wednesday, “Enawo” hit the capital city in the middle of the island, before being downgraded to a tropical depression by the national weather service.
 
Helimission and our helicopters are supporting various organizations on site. Thanks to our helicopters and in cooperation with aid organizations like Medair, we have already been able to help hundreds of people by bringing them medical aid and food supplies.
