Donations needed for Mozambique flood relief
Disaster relief organisation Gift of the Givers has begun its work in flood-hit Mozambique.
JOHANNESBURG - Disaster relief organisation Gift of the Givers on Tuesday began its work in flood-hit Mozambique.
At least 40 people have died and 150,000 people were left homeless after the country was hit by severe flooding last week.
Gift of the Givers has set up emergency camps and will be distributing food, clothing and blankets as well as providing people with material to rebuild their homes.
Founder of the organisation, Imtiaz Sooliman, said they still needed support from the public.
"We will need the support of the public, especially in terms of food and water.
"Whatever can be contributed will be a great help because there are just too many people to feed."
United Nations said at least $15 million in aid is needed for relief efforts.
More than 700 people were killed when Mozambique suffered record floods in 2000.
