Our organization sent an on-site team to the affected area. The field team worked with the Mozambique government to investigate the local situation, and necessary supplies. Good Neighbors is planning to cooperate with U.N and Mozambique government to discuss the ongoing response and proceed to provide life-saving relief supplies to the affected areas.
The Emergency Relief Response team manager, Lee Jae-Wong, said “It is difficult for the Mozambique and Malawi to confirm the exact damage level because cyclone has flooded the entire village, and the village has disappeared. Our goal is to respond with professional emergency relief so residents can find relief quickly.”
