As part of its social responsibility and in solidarity with the victims of the severe tropical storm Filipo in the province of Inhambane and the armed conflicts in Cabo Delgado, ADPP delivered three and a half thousand kilos of various clothes in family packs to the Mozambican Women's Organisation (OMM) on 28 March.Damião2web

The Secretary of the Mozambican Women's Organisation (OMM), Mariazinha Niquisse, expressed her gratitude for the support provided by ADPP for the victims of the floods and armed conflicts in Cabo Delgado and referred to the organisation's readiness to embrace initiatives in response to the cyclical events that have worsened the lives of Mozambican families.

"Our relationship with ADPP goes back a long way, which is why we remembered our friends when we celebrated the 50th anniversary of OMM, so that we could celebrate with them. At the request of the President of the Association, Dr Isaura Nyusi, we felt the need to include in our festivities actions of solidarity with those families affected by the 2023 floods in Boane, which is why we asked ADPP for support because we know that it is an organisation that has always embraced humanitarian causes and solidarity with those affected by natural disasters."

"In the knowledge that when these events happen, families have no opportunity to take anything with them, they lose all their clothes, food and possessions and consequently their dignity, leaving them to be sheltered in accommodation centres. This is why we feel the need to show solidarity with these victims by joining forces with our friends," added the Secretary.

For his part, the ADPP representative, Damião Mabota, referred to the organisation's involvement in emergency actions in all regions of the country.

"It has been our practice as a humanitarian organisation to provide this kind of support to people in need, especially now in the situation of the people displaced by the armed conflicts in Cabo Delgado and the floods that have hit the southern and central regions of the country. We realise that the people who have lost everything will need a lot more support to rebuild their lives, but we also believe that this donation will alleviate some of their suffering, especially in terms of their dignity with new items of clothing. Finally, we would like to mention the good collaboration we have had with different government institutions and humanitarian aid organisations."
