[Episcopal News Service] With picture postcard landscapes, rich agricultural possibilities, and a people committed to a sustainable future, Mozambique is a place of great beauty and potential.
But intense seasonal flooding, periodic droughts and the burden of malaria and other communicable diseases continue to bring suffering to much of the population.
Responding to these crises and encouraging sustainability has been the focus of Anglican Social Action (ASA), the relief and development arm of the Diocese of Lebombo.
Episcopal Relief & Development has partnered with ASA through the malaria prevention program NetsforLife®, community development initiatives, and in responding to the immediate impact and long-term recovery from flooding disasters.
This video is also featured here as part of Episcopal Relief & Development’s 75 stories over 75 weeks project to celebrate the agency’s 75th anniversary. The 75-week celebration will continue through the end of 2015.
