£30,000 is being donated by Guernsey's Overseas Aid Commission to help the people affected by Cyclone Idai in southern Africa.
Fears are growing that the humanitarian crisis in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe could escalate, with torrential rains in the region expected and flood waters set to rise.
The donation, given on behalf of islanders, is expected to help charities provide clean drinking water, shelter, medicine and other vital supplies for up to 1.7 million people who were in the direct path of the cyclone.
It's feared waterborne diseases and hunger will spread dues to crops being destroyed and the lack of clean drinking water in the region.
Jersey Overseas Aid Commission say as casualty figures are expected to 'increase considerably', it is currently assessing what funds it can send where it'll make the most difference.
