Mozambique is a country rich in mineral and natural resources. It has over 2,500 km of coastline and access to one of Africa’s largest freshwater lakes and vast areas of fertile farmland. It has a democratically elected government and it borders the largest economy in Sub-Saharan Africa. Despite this, the country continues to wallow at the bottom of UN’s Human Development Index (178th out of 187 countries worldwide).
COUNTRY COVID UPDATE
As of September the government loosened COVID-19 restrictions on both public and commercial activities, however COVID cases continue to increase. Pray for containment of the virus and praise God that progress made up to this point has allowed some easing of restrictions and more freedom of movement and meeting.
World Renew is maintaining efforts to help isolated rural communities understand the situation and how they could be impacted. This level of uncertainty is hindering travel and work patterns. Pray for creativity and adaptability as we continue to observe physical distancing in our work and for a sense of peace as COVID fears continue to raise anxiety levels of staff and community.
At this time, all in-person training events for World Renew remain cancelled and programming has shifted to a social distancing model. This programming includes community health programming.
