Unusually early and heavy rains in Mozambique and in neighbouring countries have caused serious flooding in central Mozambique. A sharp rise in the level of the Save River in the last days of 2007 has inundated villages in Govuro District, Inhambane Province and Machanga District, Sofala Province. From December 30  to  January 1, the river rose from 3.45 metres to 8 metres, well above the alert level of 5.5 metres.

Fifteen villages were flooded in Machanga District, where Trócaire supports a local organisation, Ajoago.
