An increasing number of mothers are approaching the babyhouse asking for food parcels to feed their children. Project Moz are keen to support donations of food parcels to families, as often the reason babies and children are abandoned is due simply to the inability to provide for their basic needs.
By supporting parents who have very little with the provision of food parcels we hope to give hope and a solution to those who may otherwise feel incapable of continuing to care for their own children.
Project Moz supports families within the communities of the surrounding areas of Matola, Mozambique. They do this buy providing sponsorship to pay for food parcels and mosquito nets to be delivered to members of communities when needed. Project Moz have also recently set up a new project called the 'Shine' course which is intended to educate local women on encouraging independence and their self worth. You can support all of these areas: Food Parcels, Mosquito Nets and the Shine Course by sponsoring the Community Project for £10 a month. Every single penny will go towards these causes. You can find out more infortmation on each area below.
Malaria is the second leading cause of death from infectious diseases in Africa, after HIV/AIDS, with children aged 0 to 5 being at greatest risk (WHO, 2011). The use of an insecticide-treated mosquito net will give overnight protection to those sleeping under them. UNICEF estimate that the use of these nets reduce overall child mortality by 20 percent.
Money given to this project will be used to purchase mosquito nets that will be handed out to families within the community of matola, and surrounding areas.
The 'Shine' course was created by Hillsong Church and was recently endorsed by the Institute of Group Leaders. The course for women is a personal development and group mentoring tool that encourages women to gain a greater understanding of their worth and sense of purpose in life. The course has been run for over 15 years and in over 30 nations, with a highly positive response from participants.
The key objectives of the course are to equip women to:
•Identify themselves as valuable with something to contribute
•Build their confidence and understanding of intrinsic value
•Develop respect and boundaries in relationships
•Understand they are able to have a positive influence in their world
•Identify personal desires and strengths to motivate them to set and achieve personal goals
The course will be run for small groups of women in the community of Matola, over a period of nine weekly sessions. If the women feel the course has had a positive impact on their lives, they will be able to invite a friend to join a future course.
