WORLD VISION IN MOZAMBIQUE
Helping Mozambique’s most vulnerable children
Children in Mozambique are being empowered – along with their communities – to build a better future. Through our long-term development programmes and disaster relief projects, we’re working alongside communities for stronger families and brighter opportunities.
We’ve been in Mozambique since 1983 and currently have 31 sponsorship programmes, helping 3.5 million people. World Vision sponsors in the UK are helping children and communities in the Kazuzo project.
