International Assistance in Mozambique

Why we are on site

Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world. Every ninth adult is infected with HIV and many children grow up without parents, which further increases poverty. After 16 years of civil war, a ceasefire was negotiated in the 1990s, but political and religious tensions persist to this day. In addition to health care, the drinking water supply is also inadequate in many places. Cyclone Idai, which devastated the country in March 2019, made the situation even more precarious.

What we achieve together with our partner organisations

After Cyclone Idai devastated the country, Johanniter International Assistance was on site locally with an emergency aid team to support basic medical care for one month. In a remote region, we also set up a health centre with equipment and medicine. Together with our local partner organisations, we then provided tools and seeds in the regions affected by Idai to enable the people to become self-sufficient as quickly as possible. In addition, we offer training in sustainable cultivation and hygiene. By building latrines and sanitary facilities and distributing water purification products, we are fundamentally improving the living conditions of numerous people.
