Flood Crisis: Update on Xai-Xai and Chogoene

EFI school children at meal time
In our intervention areas of Xai-Xai and Chongoene, the situation is more stable as many families were able to escape before the floods. 

The biggest problem at the moment is hunger. This season’s crops were devastated and both the homeless families and the refugees are now approaching starvation. ALG are sending immediate relief funds to this area through our Local Partner Sister Aparecida.
Our pre-school Escolinha Flor da infancia (EFI) was protected by the torrential floods but many families have taken refuge in the surrounding village of Marien Ngouabi. We expect requests for enrollment in this pre school for underprivileged local children to increase sharply over the next weeks. Teacher Etelvina, our Local Partner in the school, has already requested us to increase our support for the year by enlarging the number students in each classroom.
