When Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique in March 2019, houses and sanitation facilities were destroyed and water sources were contaminated. People needed emergency drinking water to survive, and longer term solutions for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
Canadian Lutheran World Relief worked with partners in Muchambonha village, Manica Province to provide WASH supplies -- water purifier, buckets, dignity kits, and hygiene kits – to all 56 families in the village. They supported the construction of shelters as well as communal and family latrines. They also repaired the village water pump and trained a committee of local residents on the operations, repair and maintenance of the pump.
