report Caritas Australia

Flooding in Mozambique has put hospitals and health facilitites out of action, but the Carmelo hospital has become a lifeline, helping to provide care and support to thousands of people. The hospital is run by nuns from Argentina. When the floodwaters rose, they helped carry 100 patients upstairs to safety.

Caritas Australia, the international aid and development organization of the Catholic Church, continues to work with partners in Mozambique, where almost 250,000 people have been affected by flooding, including an estimated 180,000 temporarily displaced.
