COVID-19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE FUND
MANNA has been working in partnership with Anglican churches and communities in Mozambique & Angola for over 100 years. These communities are generally small & remote and the church and its community development teams are often the only trusted organisation in that area focusing on a wide range of issues such as health, education, agriculture and bringing Christian Hope.
Community Health Teams
In this time of crisis as COVID-19 is spreading into rural Mozambique & Angola, education & correct health messaging will save lives. The churches in the Dioceses of Nampula & Niassa, Mozambique have trusted community health teams who now are working as part of the National Response Network.
Education is vital
In Niassa diocese, leaders have been trained in Mecanhelas, Lago & Milange districts and then in turn go on and train others. Material is also being produced and disseminated in local languages.
In Nampula Diocese, they are training leaders to work in 98 communities to then train church & community leaders, teams and families on correct information to deal with COVID-19.
The teams are also giving assistance to the most vulnerable families in the form of soap, food and seeds.
MANNA is also working in partnership with Anglican Overseas Aid and other NGO's and mission agencies on the ground to deliver this essential work. Please support us now as this work is vital and time dependent. In Mozambique & Angola where there is a huge lack of access to adequate medical assistance, education on preventing Covid-19 with clear correct messaging is vital.
Education & correct health messaging will save lives.
