Despite the economic growth that has characterized the last few years, Mozambique remains among the seven poorest countries in the world. Some alarming data: 70% of the population lives below the poverty line, life expectancy is very low and the infant mortality rate is very high.
Rural areas remain the most disadvantaged: here access to drinking water and electricity is difficult, health facilities and educational places are deficient or unreachable . The subsistence economy based on agriculture exposes rural communities at risk of famine, like the one in 2006 that hit the district of Milange to which we have decided to respond by distributing food supplies. Our presence to support the community of Milange continues through interventions in agriculture and education.
