Since the end of the civil war in 1992, the living conditions of the people in Mozambique have been improving. Nevertheless, the country is strongly affected by extreme weather events such as cyclones and droughts, the Covid pandemic, as well as violent conflicts and a strained economy.

According to the World Bank, about 46 percent of the people live in poverty. At the same time, Mozambique ranks tenth among the countries most affected by natural disasters and is one of the most debt-ridden countries in the world. Such a condition requires a great variety of support, also from the world community.

Reconstruction after hurricanes in Mozambique

Mozambique was largely destroyed by hurricanes Idai and Kenneth in 2019. In 2020 and 2021, two more storms exacerbated the situation enormously. Many people lost their homes and are still waiting for assistance in temporary camps. The regions also suffer from the effects of the COVID pandemic and violent conflicts. AWO International has set itself the goal of strengthening the affected families together with Solidar Suisse.
