Christian charity launches appeal to help thousands of people left homeless in northern Mozambique

by Alex Collett

Tearfund, a Christian charity that partners with churches to help some of the poorest places in the world, has launched an appeal to help hundreds of thousands of people who are being forced to leave their homes because of violence in northern Mozambique. 

The situation has been made worse by extreme weather events and the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Armed groups have been leading a violent campaign,  torching villages, kidnapping and beheading people - including children. 

Almost 820,0001 people have been forced to flee their homes in fear.

Tearfund is launching an appeal to fund further work with the Anglican Diocese of Nampula, helping those displaced and living in host villages or camps. 

Together they are providing trauma counselling, emergency food and hygiene kits and practical items such as tents, blankets and mosquito nets.

They're helping people feed their families, giving seeds, farming tools and agricultural training.  

Ruth Tormey, Tearfund's Head of Church and Supporter Engagement, said: "At Tearfund we know many Mozambicans are surviving by the slenderest of margins, and we're determined to help them overcome the tough times they're going through. 

"It's testament to the resilience of Ibraimo and others like him that he said: "I do not know much about tomorrow but I am happy, still alive and healthy and when the war ends we will meet again telling a different story."
