Bishop Theophile Botomazava, of the Diocese of Antsiranana in Madagascar, has visited several parishes badly affected by cyclone Enawo. The cyclone made landfall in the north-east of the island last month. About 10,000 people were forced to leave their homes because of the damage. Bishop Theophile has appealed for outside assistance: "The parishes of Sambava and Antalaha are seriously affected, with 80% destruction. The poor are completely stricken, no house, no food, no rice, the harvest completely devastated; almost all the churches destroyed."
