From Food-to-Eat to Seeds-to-Grow in Cyclone-Hit Mozambique

Peace Winds Japan (PWJ) has been supporting people affected by Cyclone Idai in Mozambique since April 2019. An estimated 400,000 were displaced from their homes immediately after the disaster.

PWJ’s emergency response team visited and interviewed families, community leaders and local governments in Sofala and Manica Provinces that were hardest hit by strong winds and floods. Based on the results of these visits, food (rice/corn flour), non-food items (mosquito nets and laundry soap), and materials for housing (nails, hammers, hatchets, etc.) were distributed. The survivors were able to eat daily and rebuild their homes, with neighbors supporting one another.

From May to August 2019, PWJ moved from distributing emergency relief items to seeds and farming equipment (seeds of maize, beans and vegetables; watering cans, hoes, and knives) to more families, so that beneficiaries could restart farming and expect the earliest possible harvest. Staff from PWJ’s partner NGO, Christian Council of Mozambique, trained the beneficiaries on how to prepare good soil and prevent worms from harming the crops. The staff also visited their fields to ensure that the farmers had gained sufficient knowledge and skills.

Together with funding from GlobalGiving and Japan Platform, PWJ was able to reach a total of 3,386 families with the aforementioned items and technical support for farming in Nhamatanda District, Sofala Province.

Thank you to our supporters for helping us implement this project. We look to your generous support to continue our assistance activities in Mozambique.
