Temporary Program Suspension

HEALTH AND SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT – COVID 19

We have suspended operations for at least two months at locations around the world in response to the global threat of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This proactive measure is intended to minimize the risk COVID-19 poses to the communities we serve, our volunteers and staff; the health and safety of our All Hands and Hearts’ community is our foremost priority. We remain committed to finishing the work we began, once the global situation stabilizes. 

MOZAMBIQUE CYCLONE RELIEF

Disaster Profile: Mozambique Tropical Cyclone Idai

On March 15, 2019,  Cyclone Idai made landfall near Beira, Sofala Province, Mozambique. With sustained winds of up to 185 km/hour and torrential rains, Idai caused widespread destruction across parts of Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe. More than 400,000 individuals were displaced, over 200,000 homes were severely damaged or washed away, and a reported 4,222 classrooms were destroyed, impacting 336,125 students. Idai has been classified as one of the Southern Hemisphere’s most devastating storms on record.

Program Work: Temporary Suspension 

Our Mozambique Tropical Cyclone Relief program is currently on hold. We have suspended all operations, in response to the global COVID-19 situation, to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and the communities we serve. 

We committed to rebuilding two schools in Sofala, the most affected province in Mozambique. Working closely with the local communities, we have been constructing new, disaster-resilient classrooms, an office space and improved WaSH facilities for each school. We’ve also been exploring opportunities to increase our impact in the education and health sectors. 

In addition to our construction activities, our team started developing local community projects based on assessments conducted over the last few months. Furthermore, they have held first aid training for volunteers and staff, Disaster Risk Reduction training for the community, provided English lessons for community members near our volunteer base and organized weekly football and volleyball matches with kids in the Lamego community.

As soon as it is safe to do so, we will re-commence operations in Mozambique to complete work on the schools and look towards working on two additional schools in lamego.

Base Work Base Work

Our bases are communal living spaces that we strive to make feel like home for each and every volunteer. Base work allows us to achieve this and also gives us the opportunity to leverage volunteer skills off the worksite, should they be willing and able to help with office work.
