Contents: Mozambique: Apartheid’s Second Front? • Green Zones Hold Promise for Mozambique • Renamo: Agents of Terror • Report From the Executive Director • Ecumenical Response • The pamphlet says the crisis in Mozambique is directly linked to the current instability in Southern Africa according to the Ecumenical Documentation and Information Center for Eastern and Southern Africa. The pamphlet says Mozambique is a country of great beauty and great potential. It was once food self-sufficient and could be again; but continuing violence draws resources away from development and drains strength and hope from the people; in the capital city of Maputo, located on a beautiful stretch of sandy beach along the Indian ocean, life seems to go on as usual, removed from the violence of the countryside; there are shortages of almost everything, but consumer goods-though very expensive by local standards-are plentiful. The pamphlet asks for contributions to the Mozambique Emergency Appeal. The pamphlet discuss the Southern African Development Coordinating Conference (SADCC), Maputo, the Mozambique National Resistance (MNR, RENAMO, Ken Flower, the Christian Council of Mozambique (CCM), J. Richard Butler, the World Council of Churches (WCC), Valentine Ziswa, Christian Care of Zimbabwe, the Council of Churches of Zambia, the Christian Service Committee, co-ops, Homoine, Mark Van Koevering, the rural population, subsistence farming, blankets, seeds, medicine, and the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A.
