Flooding in Mozambique January 14, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jen @ 12:48 pm

Only two people have asked me about the current flooding in Mozambique (and actually the first person is how I even realized there was flooding!), so I’m not sure what news is being received elsewhere, although I’m actually getting my information from BBC! I think maybe no matter where we are in the world, even when disaster is down the road from us, we live with our heads in the sand. As I’m learning about the situation myself, I wanted to share with everyone else. No, Beira is not affected, although apparently an aid ship with relief supplies has arrived in Beira’s port to take supplies to the affected areas.

    Hi, Jennifer. The flooding has been on British TV and today I received an email from ChristianAid requesting help for flood victims.

    Good! I’m glad to hear that. I guess it’s just the States that’s not getting the news.
