Humanitarian help for Mozambique

Dufry has donated aid kits following the recent cyclones in Mozambique

Dufry has donated 591 aid kits to the ASEM orphanage in Beira, a town heavily affected by the recent cyclones in the central-east part of Mozambique and 1,200 km north from the capital city of Mozambique, Maputo, where Dufry operates stores.

The devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Idai, which made landfall north of Beira in March, left 1.85 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. Due to the floods, many children have sadly lost relatives or have been separated from their families. They're also particularly vulnerable to deadly diseases like cholera and malaria in these dangerous conditions.

The kits included essential, nonperishable food items, including rice, biscuits, milk powder, flour, pasta, sugar and soya oil as well as soap, all packed in a plastic bucket that can be used to transport and to store water.

Hand in hand with the Rotary Club in Maputo, that supported Dufry in identifying where our contribution was most needed, and with the Rizwan Adatia Foundation that helped to prepare the kits and transported them from Maputo to Beira, the aid has been successfully delivered. The orphanage received the kits under the direct supervision of  both Dufry´s General Manager in Mozambique, Mario Dinis and ASEM founder, Barbara Hoffman. The Rotary Club in Beira also attended.
