Wheresoever Disaster Relief
Mozambique and Malawi have been greatly affected by the two cyclones that ravaged their land in March and April. This is the first time in recorded istory that Mozambique has been hit by two cyclones in the same season, and the last one is the stongest cyclone to ever hit anywhere in Africa. The construction methods used in their houses simply cannot sustain those winds. The floods have been even more of a problem than the winds. Many thousands of homes are destroyed, many camps of homeless people, and they are very very hungry since all their crops have been washed away just before their harvest time in April. International aid organizations and the Mozambique government are trying to help but are overwhelmed, they cannot cope with the need. The Wheresoever African teams are very busy doing what they can using the funds that you are providing via Wheresoever. We are targeting three areas to help: Beira which was worst case disaster, Tete near our second mission base, and the southern tip of Malawi where most houses are still standing but they have no food. We are in process of replacing the roof of four houses, provided Bibles for pastors who have lost theirs, provided a propane/electric oven for a pastor and his congregation, but the greatest need is still food. The need will continue for many months until the next harvest. Wheresoever will continue to help as long as you continue to give for this purpose. Those funds go directly to help the people in need, we do not use any of it for admin costs. Because many of the people we know have been affected, we are able to target the needy cases. If God leads you to help in this effort, remember that the most important help you can give is prayer. If you can also help financially, please click here: GET INVOLVED.
