Mozambique Flood aid shifts from relief to recovery
Now is the best time for recovery work because the dry season is in progress. LWR has provided a total of $103,000 in crisis aid for Mozambique, plus $50,000 for a smaller, flood-relief effort in neighboring South Africa. The grants include a recent $35,000 gift from LCMS World Relief.
Mozambique and its immediate neighbors suffered the worst flooding in 25 years after heavy rains in February. Lutheran World Federation assisted a quarter million people during the emergency using relief items either purchased locally or sent by LWR and other members of the Action by Churches Together alliance. Most of LWF's staff were themselves disaster victims.
