Johannesburg - British Airways will from Monday give all money collected through its Flying Start charity to support those affected by the devastating Cyclone Idai in Mozambique.
Since it made landfall on 15 March, Cyclone Idai has affected 2.6 million people and left hundreds of thousands without shelter. The United Nations predicts that this may become one of the worst weather-related disasters on record in the southern hemisphere.
British Airways said that for the next two weeks, all onboard envelope collections will go the Disasters Emergency Committee's (DEC) relief efforts in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.
The DEC is a unique alliance of the UK's leading aid agencies and broadcasters which aims to maximize fundraising and quickly deliver effective emergency relief during major disasters.
The immediate and primary focus of the relief effort is to save lives, but the effect of this disaster will be felt for many months to come.
