Mozambique needs you NOW!
Mozambique was hit by two violent cyclones this month killing over 1,200 people. Cyclone Idai flattened the densely populated central coast while Cyclone Kenneth barreled over the less populated northern coast. It is the first time on record that two such powerful cyclones have hit Mozambique just weeks apart.
CRI is mobilizing Responder Teams now to deploy into Mozambique to bring humanitarian assistance, the Love of Jesus and the Gospel to those affected by this terrible disaster. Our response teams will be ministering to families who have lost their homes, livelihoods and their loved ones. We will be ministering to hundreds of traumatized children. Our relief efforts will be focused on putting roofs on schools for children who are now in the rainy season. $1600.00 provides a new roof for a school made up of 3-4 villages.
