Cyclone in southern Africa: 3 months later

Shortly after, the whole community was told to evacuate their homes. This included Shika and her babies, who she had named Tio and Timothea. With the help of a member of her church, Shika was able to move some of her belongings to the loft of a nearby neighbour for safekeeping.  The flooding was due to Cyclone Idai, one of the worst weather events to hit southern Africa in recent memory.
