World Vision Hong Kong in Mozambique (2019)Tags：
Despite its strategic geographic location and being rich in natural resources, Mozambique remains one of the least developed countries in the world, with about two-thirds of the population living and working in rural areas. Apart from being hit by two major cyclones in 2019, Mozambique also faces political instability in the form of armed confrontations and struggles with a severe debt crisis. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has only brought even greater misery to Mozambique’s economy, and how the international community steps in to help will play a big part in how the country overcomes the adversities.
World Vision has been working in Mozambique since 1983, just 8 years after the birth of the country. Partnering with parents, like-minded organisations, faith leaders and the government, World Vision now operates 28 Area Development Programmes in Mozambique. In the aftermath of the devastating cyclones Idai and Kenneth, World Vision has also been offering relief supplies and assistance to the affected people and communities.
In 2019, World Vision Hong Kong contributed approximately HK$30.59 million to support 3 ADPs and 9 other projects in Mozambique, benefiting over 200,900 people.
