The third wave of Covid-19 cases is spreading faster in Africa and hitting harder on a continent facing a shortage of vaccines, the World Health Organization (WHO) regional office recenetly warned. The latest wave threatens to be the worst to date in Africa. New restrictions are expected to push more people into poverty, notably street vendors, informal workers which already suffered from previous lock downs and are just resuming activities. Afrilanthropy has been one of the first organization in Mozambique to develop a deliver support in a unique partnership between local churches, grocery stores and private sector. Our model has proven to be successful and been replicated by the local churches. As the world attention is now focused on other issues, it is key to share light on the unfolding drama we are experiencing. So we count on your continued generosity to support our program and enable us to support as many people as possible in Mozambique.

Hello and thank you to you, our donors!

We are pleased to inform you that your contribution has been essential for us.

 

With your help, Afrilanthropy has partnered with Caritas churches to distribute help to families in Ivory Coast. These families reside in the neighborhoods of Abidjan, and the children, who usually eat during school, have been especially in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Eight more families have been aided over the last three months. These food kits include 1 bag of rice, 2 bags of pasta, a can of oil, cans of tomato concentrate, 1 toilet soaps, one breakfast kit. 

 

Afrilanthopy’s project goal managed to help 8 new families and in total from the day we launch the campaign 36 families and their children in Ivory Coast, during the pandemic of Corona Virus. With your help, we have provided assistance and nutrition to children in need. 

 

We thank you all for your support. Our goal of raising 2,000 e to support local families to feed their families during Covid-19 was been successfully completed. We encourage you to continue to support our projects and actions at:

800 Thank you, more help needed

Thanks to your generous donations we have been able to reach over 800 families in Maputo and Pempa. We have intensified donation of food vouchers in Pemba, in the Cabo Delgado province, where the COVID crisis has been compounded with a humanitarian catastrophe, as half a million civilians are reportedly on the run fighting violence, which has already killed over 2000 people and intensified in the latest months.

We have heard and seen first-hand houses being looted and burned, families separated and health centres and schools seriously damaged. Many of such families are seeking refuge and help from the Sisters of Jesus Good Shepart, our local partner.

So our food vouchers have gone in the right hands and will be critical to help displace people who need everything. We appeal to you to share our campaign widely and allow us to do more. 

Once again thank you
