Our goal

Reconstruction of health facilities to ensure medical care for the returning population.

Hardly noticed by the world public, terrorist attacks have increasingly taken place in Mozambique since 2017.

Many villages and the infrastructure of Cabo Delgado province were destroyed by these attacks. Hundreds of thousands fled the armed attacks inside the country. In 2021, some of the captured towns and villages could be liberated again. To enable the population to return now, the infrastructure must be restored.

Cap Anamur engegament in Mozambique

2019 - 20202022 - heute

The situation in Mozambique

Political situation

After gaining independence from Portugal in 1975, the country experienced years of civil war, which led to a complete economic collapse. It was not until 1994 that peace talks led to a stabilizing situation. Since 2017, the country has increasingly had to deal with Islamist attacks and assaults. In the spring of 2020, these attacks by jihadist militia increased, especially in Cabo Delgabo province. The civil populaton increasingly became the target of those attacks. This led thousands to abandon their villages for safety in western Mozambique. By now, the situation is calming down again and efforts are being made for the population to return to their home villages as soon as possible.

Social situation.

Years of civil war and the devastating cyclones Idai and Kenneth, which destroyed large parts of the coastal region in 2019, have left the country with inadequate medical care. In rural regions there is offered little or even no public health care at all. Despite an economic upswing since the end of the 1990s, due to the mining of raw materials, a large part of the population lives in poor conditions. The attacks by the extremist groups, which have been taking place repeatedly since 2017, have led to further destruction of the infrastructure. Hospitals and administrative buildings were burnt down in the attacks.

Cap Anamur is rebuilding two destroyed hospitals in the Cabo Delgabo region to provide medical care for the returning population.

In 2019, large parts of the coastal region in Mozambique were destroyed by cyclones Kenneth and Idai. People had to seek shelter in an elementary school, for example, because their houses were completely destroyed.

Our engagement in Mozambique.

Rebuilding: Hospital Quissanga

In Quissanga, the district capital, there is a hospital named Distrital de Quissanga. It was partially burned down after the January 2020 raids. It consists of a maternity ward, an ambulance, a nurses room, and a medical center. Most of the buildings are empty and some of them are very damaged. Cap Anamur will first renovate the maternity ward and the outpatient clinic and then the remaining buildings. At the same time, an independent water supply is established. Next to it, a generator is installed for emergencies.

Reconstruction of the health care post in Nacobe

Hospital construction

The Centro de Saudé Nacobe outpost consists of four buildings: a maternity ward and its waiting room, an outpatient clinic and accommodation for medical staff.

While the maternity ward was destroyed, all other buildings are in relatively good condition. Therefore, Cap Anamur plans to build a new maternity ward and to clean and make minor repairs in the other buildings.
