Springfield-based international charity Convoy of Hope has announced they are deploying a team to Mozambique for the second time in six weeks.
The country was struck by Tropical Cyclone Kenneth, which made landfall with winds equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane. The storm brought more than 3 feet of rain, causing catastrophic flooding.
“Convoy of Hope and our network of partners throughout Mozambique are rapidly organizing a response,” Convoy of Hope national spokesperson Jeff Nene said in a statement. “Our partners on the ground are preparing to distribute food, water filtrations systems, solar lights and other relief supplies to those affected.”
Convoy had already been responding in the wake of Cyclone Idai, serving more than 400,000 meals in Mozambique and Malawi.
