More than words...
When we arrived in Africa, we soon realized that people would need more than our nice words.
In fact, God's love is showed in pratical ways also, trying to minimize the poverty of these people.
According to Unicef report, 38% of the population in Mozambique live under $1/day, which is 24 Meticais, where sugar costs 18 per kilo, milk costs 45 per litre, rice costs 30 per kilo and eggs costs 44 per dozen.
Thanks to the generosity of individuals and churches in Portugal, we could bless with clothes, toys, books and school material, people from different areas of the city: Alto Maé, Djuba, Umbeluzi, Machava, Malhampsene and "Casa da Formiga", an orphanage that prepares about 500 daily meals for needed children in the area.
