News: Mozambique Cyclone Jokwe Flooding

Mozambique continues to suffer from excessive rain fall this season. Last month, it was Cyclone Ivan, last week it was Cyclone Jokwe.

It looks like the prediction we made early January unfortunately came true. In an earlier post, I showed pictures of the flooding from January.

Here is a pictorial update from the relief operation on the ground, by Joakim Kembro, one of our colleagues who just returned from Caia in Mozambique.

This is why we do this work:

flooded areas

Moving food relief by barges and by air:

loading boats and barges with food
airlifting food
loading food in boats

Anyone who thinks we live and work in poshy offices, think again...:

Nice sunsets are an added bonus:
