Mozambique: German Grant for Food Aid

The German government has made available 1.2 million euros (about 1.4 million US dollars) to support households affected by drought in the southern Mozambican province of Inhambane. According to a German embassy press release, this sum will be managed by two non-governmental organisations, namely CARE and Welthungerhilfe (German Agrarian Action). “The German government has provided CARE and Welthungerhilfe with 700,000 euros and 500,000 euros, respectively, to support the neediest households in Inhambane”, announced the release. It is estimated that 1.4 million people in Mozambique are in a state of food insecurity, and 43 per cent of children suffer from chronic malnutrition. “The population has no possibility of making savings for difficult periods or for preparing to deal with climate change”, added the release. “So the German government is also supporting projects that seek to respond better to climate change”.
