After the floods of January 2013, in Mozambique, Regina’s house was selected to be rebuilt. The family hut where she lives with her parents, her brother and a cousin, was in severely bad shape. The family was living under inhumane conditions. ALG rebuilt not only the hut but also the latrine, providing them a dignified and healthy environment for her family to live in and to promote Regina’s development.
The funding for this family hut (at a cost of £779) was fully secured by the ALG Emergency Flood Fund, which relied on the noteworthy contribution of Cascais City Council, along with Xai-Xai City. The Housing initiative gives children more than just a roof. Through the housing rehabilitation, the right to Nourishment and a Home is fulfilled as per the Universal Children’s Rights Declaration. A clean and proper a meal space, and the inclusion of a better latrine, enables a significant improvement in the health and hygiene conditions, sheltering the children from the weather conditions and promoting better daily hygiene habits.
Finally, a dignified place to shelter children promotes their psycho-social development and feelings of protection, comfort and safety. From £780 to fund a family hut, ALG secures the improvement of the living conditions of these families through the creation of a safe clean space, with basic health and hygiene conditions, which allow children to grow in a happy and healthy way. Our aim is to improve degraded family huts and to break the local poverty cycle. Support the construction of and ALG family hut – give a Great Help to Mozambique! Contact us for more details.
