In 2007, a number of disasters devastated communities and impacted the lives of people already struggling to survive on a daily basis. Most recently, a cyclone ravaged remote coastal towns in southern Bangladesh, leaving millions injured or homeless.
Stamford, CT, March 2, 2007. In response to the devastating floods in Mozambique, AmeriCares and International Relief and Development (IRD), two international relief and humanitarian aid organizatiions, are reaching out to help those affected by the disaster.
In order to get immediate relief to those most in need, Stamford-based AmeriCares teamed up with IRD, the nonprofit organization on the ground in Mozambique.
Weeks of heavy rains in central Mozambique have led to extensive flooding from the Zambezi River leaving nearly 170,000 people homeless. The floods washed away houses and crops at the time of this farming region's harvest season, destroying the livelihoods of tens of thousands. The displaced people are overwhelming the temporary shelters, stretching the capacity and challenging already deteriorating sanitary conditions.
AmeriCares responded immediately by partnering with International Relief & Development (IRD), the nonprofit organization on the ground in Mozambique.

[New Canaan, CT March 2, 2000] - Thousands of people remain trapped on roofs and in treetops, as waters continue to rise in flood-ravaged Mozambique. The situation is likely to worsen before it improves, with many of the nation's 15 rivers still receiving waters from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. The threat of a new cyclone, Gloria, now hovering in the Indian Ocean, has spurred relief efforts.
