World Vision Mozambique, a non-government organization, announced Thursday in central Mozambican city of Tete that the multi-sector assistance will cover sectors of food assistance, water and sanitation, provision of seeds for the coming agriculture campaign, and promotion of hygiene methods.
Latest statistics carried out by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security pointed out that around 1.5 million people are affected by food insecurity and 100,000 children are at risk of facing acute mal-nutrition due to shortage of food.
“We expect that with this assistance, families will be able to improve their access to food and also increase their resilience to natural disasters,” said Claudio Jamal, Humanitarian and Emergency Affairs manager at World Vision Mozambique.
The assistance is expected to last until July 2017 when the consortium led by the World Vision has fully implemented its assistance. Enditem
