It is still possible to support us!

We are experiencing the upmost catastrophy in our history. We are a feminist group based on solidarity and we count on your solidarity. 
We are the Sofala Women’s Group for Sharing Ideas  - GMPIS (Grupo de Mulheres de Partilha de Ideias de Sofala) in Mozambique. Existing since 2014, we are a feminist network of community based associations, connected with the Worldwide Women’s March. We are smallholder farmers/peasant women, informal sector workers, women living with HIV, teachers, mid-wifes, lesbians, leaders of women’s associations in various communities affected by the cyclone. 

We confirm the studies saying that women and children are the most affected in natural disaster.  Our situation is very difficult, we are facing immense materials, physical and psycho-emotional damages.  The cyclone phenomena continues to threaten our lives.  Your support will go to affected women and their families via our associations.

Your solidarity funds will be directed to GMPIS’ 29 associations working in affected communities.  Funds management will be done by the network’s coordination committee presenting accountability and disaster update reports on the GMPIS Facebook page and on this platform. The funds will be received by ADS, a member organization of GMPIS that is administrating the groups funds. 
For administrative reasons, the GoFundMe account was opened by a GMPIS activist. The donations from the GoFundMe platform will be transferred to Heike Friedhoffs bank account, a member of the GMPIS. She will transfer the funds immediately to the mozambican account of ADS. That was the most suitable way we found, as it is not possible to register a mozambican organization on the GoFundMe platform.

Information Note 8

Continuing the process of supporting women victims of cyclone IDAI and their families, GMPIS began this week with the delivery of the first support kits. These first kits contain basic food and necessities products such as corn flour, beans, sugar, oil, soap powder and soap. It also contains two hoes and a machete so that people can return to cultivate their fields.
In the following phase kits of household utensils such as buckets, pans and kits of construction material such as roof tops, nails and blocks will also be delivered.
So far 204 women and their families have benefited. The distribution is being organized through the GMPIS member associations that operate in the communities. Our campaign is still open for those who still want to donate!

Dear supporters, we would like to update you about our process: Finally we managed to transfer all the money to our mozambican bank account. The mapping of the affected areas is done and at the moment we are getting the quotations to buy the material that will be provided to the affected women and their families according to the prioritization that was done collectively. We hope to send you very soon pictures of the delivery of the aid. Thanks so much again for your solidarity!
