Mozambique Aid & Good Trade (GBP £)

£1,666 of £15,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 4 months
[English/Portuguese]

[EN] Central Mozambique has been affected by the worst natural disaster in decades. Cyclone Idai destroyed homes, roads, schools and the subsistence crops on which the majority of the population depend. Tens of thousands of live are now at risk of famine and disease. 



As a company dedicated to promoting inclusive development, Mozambique Good Trade cannot stand aside and do nothing.



We have started a disaster relief initiative that will, over the next 6-12 months, supply food and other essential goods to carefully selected organizations working on the ground.



Because we want affected communities to get on with their normal lives, we will also be supporting local agricultural projects through capacity building looking to later integrating them in our supply chains, placing their products in the markets and creating sustainable economic opportunities.



100% of funding raised is going into food and other essential goods (rice, nutritious flours, baby porridge, salt, sugar, others) - all overheads and management costs shall be supported by Mozambique Good Trade’s own funds.
 
What are we doing differently:
- Food to be donated is being sourced locally at cost price;
- We source from our existing network of local producers (small businesses and farmer cooperatives);
- Sourcing food locally is more efficient as we avoid expensive overseas transport and logistics;
- We use no donation funds for overheads as we rely on our existing procurement staff and channels;
- In sourcing locally we support the local economy and small businesses;
- We will be publishing online all details on donations received, use of funds and list of beneficiaries to ensure transparency:
- We have partnered with a local organization that has already distributed one thousand tonnes of aid in the affected areas;
- We are providing essential goods in the short term to alleviate famine and supporting economic reconstruction in the medium to long term.

[PT] O centro de Moçambique foi atingido pelo pior desastre natural da últimas décadas. O ciclone Idai destruiu casas, estradas, escolas e as colheitas de que a maioria da população depende para alimentação. Dezenas de milhares de vidas estão agora em risco por fome e doença.
 
A Mozambique Good Trade, como empresa dedicada a promover o desenvolvimento inclusivo e sustentável em Moçambique, não pode deixar de ajudar as comunidades que sofrem neste momento.
 
Iniciámos uma iniciativa de emergência que, nos próximos 6 a 12 meses, fornecerá alimentos e outros bens essênciais a organizações a trabalhar no local e cuidadosamente seleccionadas por nós.
 
Porque queremos que as comunidades afetadas regressem às suas vidas normais, iremos também apoiar projetos agrícolas locais com vista a poder, mais tarde, integrá-los na nossa cadeia de fornecimento, colocando seus produtos nos mercados e criando oportunidades económicas de forma sustentavel.
 
Todo o financiamento angariado será exclusivamente aplicado na compra de alimentos e outros bens essenciais (arroz, farinhas nutritivas, papas de bebé, sal, açúcar, outros) – todos os custos de gestão serão suportados com fundos próprios da Moçambique Good Trade.
 
O que estamos a fazer de diferente?
- Os alimentos a doar são adquiridos localmente a preço de custo;
- Os produtos serão fornecidos pela nossa rede existente de produtores locais (pequenas empresas e cooperativas de agricultores);
- O fornecimento local garante um uso mais eficiente de fundos porque evitamos importações e respectivos custos de transporte e logística;
- Não utilizaremos fundos doados para despesas de gestão pois utilizaremos em nossa equipa e canais de compras existentes;
- Ao adquirir produtos localmente apoiamos a economia local e as pequenas empresas;
- Publicaremos on-line todos os detalhes sobre doações recebidas, uso de fundos e lista de beneficiários para garantir máxima transparência:
- Temos como parceiros uma organização local que já distribuiu mais de mil toneladas de ajuda nas áreas afetadas;
- Estamos a fornecer bens essenciais para aliviar a fome no curto prazo e apoiar a reconstrução económica a médio e longo prazo.

100% of donation value will go into the acquisition of food stuff to support affected communities.

The World Food Programme (WFP) estimates 1.7 million people need food aid in the areas affected by Idai. And they have funding to cover only 20% of that.
Our project proposes to: 1. raise funding to support various small organizations on the ground by providing food products and 2. get more food for less money by sourcing food products locally at cost prices (non-speculative) and with 0% overhead spending.
Support this initiative!
