Cylone Eline and subsequent floods have had devastating repercussions in Mozambique. For weeks people have been clinging for their lives on roofs and treetops. People of the provinces of southern Gaza, central Inhambane and Maputo have been most affected.
GOAL emergency relief workers are currently working in the Maputo area. GOAL staff members have been going out in boats trying to help people that are stranded.
GOAL has commissioned 40 tonnes of emergency non-food supplies - which are currently en route from Nairobi. Included in the aid cargo is plastic sheeting, blankets, collapsible jerry cans, mosquito netting and various other items.
GOAL needs your help - URGENTLY.
