March, 2017: a cyclone strikes Madagascar

With winds of 300 km/h, Cyclone “Enawo” swept the island last March. 
Harvests were totally destroyed in this country that is among the world’s poorest and was already suffering from severe food shortages.

We immediately provided financial assistance to the Malagasy Akamasoa association, run by Father Pedro Opeka, which had already been supported in 2016 at the second Stop Hunger Donors Evening in France. In parallel, 162 tons of pasta were donated thanks to the mobilization of Groupe Panzani and Sodexo’s International Purchasing Department.
