The Need

Tropical Cyclone IDAI formed over the Northern Mozambique Channel on 9 March, moving south-east with a wind speed of 89 – 118 km/h. IDAI made landfall on 14 March at 23.30 UTC close to Beira City, Sofala Province, Central Mozambique as a Category 3 cyclone with winds of 170-190 km/h. The cyclone brought torrential rains and winds, exacerbating existing flooding following heavy rains from 6 March 2019. OCHA estimates that 1.8 million are likely to have been affected by the cyclone, including 446 deaths.

The Response

Team Rubicon are providing safe water through purification to the most remote, hard to reach survivors – these people will have received no aid in the last 2 weeks, and would receive nothing if Team Rubicon were not deploying.

The Output

Each water purification kit we deploy can provide safe, purified water to 2,250 beneficiaries for 4 weeks and 240 beneficiaries for 1 year- a total of 2490 beneficiaries per kit. The 6 x kits currently being deployed with our team will benefit 4,940 survivors.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Team Rubicon UK to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Team Rubicon UK we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Team Rubicon UK to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Team Rubicon UK will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Team Rubicon UK receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
