Mozambique

Since 1987, Food for the Hungry (FH) has worked in Mozambique to help the poor. From 1997 to 2007, in the Sofala province, FH focused on agriculture, savings groups, health and other areas. One of FH’s more successful programs was using care groups to teach mothers healthy practices, like breastfeeding and treating malaria, to help newborns survive. In some communities, this decreased child mortality by 62 percent. FH also teaches about HIV/AIDS prevention and how to care for those living with HIV/AIDS.
