MAPUTO, Mozambique , April 11, 2000 - After many days of planning, purchasing, organizing and transporting, we are on our way to distribute survival kits (pots, utensils, plates, cups, a tarp, woolen blankets, a jerry can and plastic pail), agricultural tools and some seeds. Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) has contributed $433,455 Cdn./$298,000 U.S. to pay for 5,000 of the survival kits and 20,000 blankets. The Christian Council of Mozambique (CCM) has teams of local people in place to control, organize and distribute these items.
The existing air assets amount to 23 aircraft, down from 59 at the peak of airlift operations. The costs of the air operation are met by contributions from various donors. Currently the operations cost about USD one million per week. Currently there are aircraft of the SAAF, WFP and Air Serv. The cut-off date for air operations is 22 or 23 April, according to the funds available. WFP will seek funds to keep the operation going until 29 April. However, careful planning is required to ensure the most efficient use of air assets over the next two weeks.
