Throughout the year of 2016, the draught felt in some areas of Mozambique aggravated the already poor living conditions of families. Family farming plots allows several families to obtain a meagre income. This situation forced ALG to adopt a few emergency measures. Since June, the Basic Baskets delivered to the families of sponsored children included, on a monthly basis, a source of protein. It varies between chicken and sardines. For many local families, this is their only consistent source of food throughout the month. And the distribution day is a true joy, hundreds of chickens trying to fly with their legs held by really happy children!
