Terrible floods have placed thousands of families in Mozambique's ZambeziValley at risk.
Homes are submerged, crops have been wiped out, and entire villages lie in ruins.
World Relief is launching an emergency response - distributing food to victims and working with local churches to help the most vulnerable.
Many of those affected by the floods are in areas where World Relief operates long-term health and AIDS prevention programs.
Food distributions will target orphans, their caregivers, and people living with AIDS.
The local people are looking to us …
