Relief plea for the people of devastated Mozambique

Cyclone Idai came and went  two weeks ago, leaving total devastation behind in Mozambique, as well as badly affecting Zimbabwe and Malawi.  Whole towns and villages have been flattened.  What was once dry land now looks like an inland ocean.  Hundreds of people have died, and many more are missing.

Cyclone Idai is being quoted as one of the worst  ever weather related disasters in the Southern Hemisphere.  That’s the statistic, but here’s the dire human reality . . .

HOPE Africa has been working with the Bishops to help with a recovery and rebuilding plan for the country that will include meeting the immediate needs.

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba’s visit on 1 April and over the days to follow, is to show love, solidarity and support for the people of Mozambique.

People have lost everything – homes, possessions, crops, livestock, and tragically also family members.  There’s a critical need for temporary shelter, food, clean water, clothing, and medicines. 

Our Mozambiquan brothers and sisters in Christ need our prayers, our solidarity, and our material help in their desperate circumstances.

Through your donations we can assist the church in Mozambique, help communities rebuild their lives and restore normality – and you can help by clicking here to make your online donation.

One of the greatest stories ever told never actually happened. It was fiction. But we know that fiction may speak truths in the clearest and most convincing [and convicting] manner possible. The story is the parable that Jesus told of THE PRODIGAL SON. [more]



At our recent Strategic Planning HOPE Africa decided to change the last word in our full name from Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Employment to Empowerment.  This was done to reflect what our work is currently all about.  While we feel that employment is important, we rather empower and equip people with the necessary skill to find employment.


We Will Speak Out is a coalition committed to demonstrating, mobilising, and equipping leadership to end the pain of sexual violence across the world. We recognize that together, we need to speak out against sexual violence and break the silence that exists. Let us join hands and work together to change this story forever. [more]
