Lutheran World Relief providing assistance to flood survivors

Lutheran World Relief is helping provide emergency food, basic shelter and resettlement to safer areas for people who fleeing their homes because of extensive flooding in Mozambique and South Africa. In Mozambique, a Lutheran World Relief partner agency is extending aid to 7,000 families. In South Africa, food, blankets and temporary shelter are being prepared for as many as 17,000 families. Lutheran World Relief has sent emergency funds of $30,000, an earlier shipment of $475,000 of quilts, blankets and kits has just arrived, and LWR is accepting donations for further assistance to flood survivors. LWR is a member of the international emergency alliance, Action by Churches Together.
Donations to Lutheran World Relief for Mozambique flood survivors help provide food, basic household items, shelter, seeds and more:

  • $34 will provide basic food for one family for two months (rice, corn, oil, sugar and salt).
  • $46 will buy a family survival kit of basic household kitchen and shelter items.
  • $10 will provide enough maize, beans and peanut seeds for a subsistence farmer to start over.
  • $1,500 will assist one family to resettle and rebuild for themselves in a community with safe water supply, sanitation, and a health clinic.

LWR is accepting contributions toward the relief efforts in Southern Africa.
