Integration of Displaced Communities
As a result of an armed conflict, northern Mozambique is currently experiencing a humanitarian crisis.
Hundreds of thousands of people lose their homes, schools, work and food. Burnt villages, murdered people and totally destroyed infrastructure are added daily.
This is an increasingly emerging reality and, therefore, the Galp Foundation, together with Helpo, redefined investment plans and directed them to support Mozambican internally displaced persons. Support has been provided through nutritional screening for pregnant women and children up to 2 years of age and by sending survival kits consisting of food, health equipment, hygiene and blankets.
The Karibu project, supported by the Camões Institute, is also creating conditions to integrate displaced people from the Cabo Delgado region into schools in the Mahate neighborhood. In this context, several educational institutions will be properly prepared and adapted to accommodate internally displaced persons of school age.
All of these humanitarian actions will continue throughout the year 2021, with the promise of trying to give all these people and families in need a future with more social stability, basic conditions and general well-being.
