Cabo Delgado, 21 March, 2021 / 8:21 pm (ACI Africa).
The Pontifical charity organization, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International, has reached out to the victims of violence in Mozambique who have been traumatized by the various kinds of atrocities they are facing owing to the ongoing insurgency in their country.
In a report published by ACN Thursday, March 18, the leadership of the charity organization highlights a number of projects in the Southern African nation, including financial support to boost humanitarian relief in camps, especially in Northern parts of the country.
ACN reports that it has granted US$190,000.00 in emergency aid because, “despite international relief efforts, there is an acute scarcity of food and many people are starving.”
In the report, Ulrich Kny, the ACN project officer for Mozambique says, “Thanks to this support, the Priests and Sisters are able to distribute food to the refugees.”
“Another project was initiated to provide psychosocial assistance to the refugees, most of whom are severely traumatized after experiencing unimaginable suffering in the terrorist attacks and through their forced displacement,” ACN leadership says.
