"The devastating floods that occurred in Mozambique in January and
February of 2013 affected nearly half-a-million people," said Save
the Children's Mozambique Country Director John Grabowski.
"Mozambique LNG's support will contribute to providing immediate,
life-saving needs for flood-affected families, and will further help
communities with longer-term recovery. The funds will also contribute
to construction of homes in safer areas using locally available
materials, as well as education efforts centered on addressing the
risks and vulnerabilities to similar weather events in local
The overall objective of the 12-month project is to meet the most
urgent needs of flood-affected children and their families by
providing relief supplies and services that preserve health and
dignity during displacement and facilitate safe returns. The primary
beneficiaries of the program are the flood-affected children and
their communities, specifically those that were displaced from their
homes to temporary accommodation centers and resettlement areas
following the flooding.
"We recognized the tremendous need, and Save the Children provided
the ideal vehicle for Mozambique LNG to help restore hope to affected
communities in Mozambique," said John Peffer, Anadarko's Country
Manager in Mozambique. "We are grateful for the work Save the
Children is doing to help Mozambique overcome the tragic weather
events that occurred earlier this year."
