In January of this year alone, the city of Nampula recorded over 450 mm (18 in) of rain in just 5 days and three rivers burst their banks, killing nine people and leaving entire areas without electricity. In February, the districts of Lago and Mecula and the city of Lichinga in Niassa province also saw severe rainfall that destroyed gardens, farms, and over 1600 houses, leaving thousands without shelter or food. Local churches have made contributions of flour, salt, and firewood and loaned household goods like pots and blankets to those in affected, but the need far exceeds their capacity. World Renew and three of our partners from the Diocese of Niassa are providing support with hygiene and malaria prevention campaigns and the distribution of basic commodities as well as seeds, sweet potato vines, and cassava stems for households re-establishing their own food supply.
Please pray for the situation here.
