The Prem Rawat Foundation Supports Disaster-Relief Efforts in Mozambique

MAPUTO, Mozambique, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Aid provided by The Prem Rawat Foundation has been successful in helping over 1,000 children and 300 women and their families who were victims of the flooding earlier this year in central and southern Mozambique.

After the flooding, caused by cyclones in this area last February, over 140,000 people, half of them children, were displaced from their homes. The Prem Rawat Foundation made a grant to The Foundation for Community Development (FDC) in Mozambique. The contribution was used to provide emergency food supplies for women and children in the Vilankulo and Caia districts.

In recognition of the Foundation's contribution for flood relief, Graca Machel, FDC president of the board and Nelson Mandela's wife, said: "We would like to express our sincere gratitude to The Prem Rawat Foundation. Thanks to your support, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, and their families in the benefited areas can now cope with the extreme difficulties posed by the natural disasters."

The goals of the project were to encourage community members to keep children in school through offering nutritional support in primary schools and to provide essential alimentary products and nutritional education to pregnant women and those caring for children.

To accelerate the social recovery of the people affected by the calamities, over 24,000 school snacks were distributed and five nutritional education sessions were held in each school. These sessions also covered community public health matters related to the emergency situation (hygiene and sanitation, water and food treatment and prevention measures for common diseases). Also, 300 essential nutritional products were distributed on a monthly basis.

The directors of both schools reported that during the project the children's effectiveness was increased and that they arrived on time in the classes, which had a very positive impact on their educational achievements.

Due to the positive results in the schools, both of the school directors as well as leaders of the local communities have requested FDC to continue the school snacks program.

FDC ( a Mozambican non-profit foundation that aims to strengthen the capacity of disadvantaged communities with a view to overcoming poverty and promoting social justice in Mozambique by empowering local communities to take the lead in their own development.

The Prem Rawat Foundation supports significant humanitarian initiatives that improve the quality of life for people in need around the world by providing basic necessities such as food, water, medical care and disaster relief. The Foundation also makes significant grants to effective relief organizations such as Friends of the United Nations World Food Program.

In addition to its humanitarian activities, the Foundation also furthers the message of peace of Prem Rawat, widely known by the honorary title of Maharaji.
