Leaflet issued as part of the Mozambique Emergency Appeal. The leaflet says violence in Mozambique is destroying lives and disrupting agriculture. An estimated 4.6 million Mozambicans are at risk of starvation; 550,000 have fled to neighboring countries; 1.5 million more are internally displaced. The leaflet says the attacks are the work of RENAMO, a group believed to be supported by South Africa. The leaflet says Church World Service is assisting the councils of churches of Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, and South Africa to respond with food, clothing, medicine, blankets, tents, seeds, and tools; CWS is also supporting its ecumenical partners' long-term development goals of renewed agriculture, pastoral care, and literacy education. The leaflet says Church World Service is the relief, development and refugee assistance arm of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. The leaflet includes photographs by Ruth Brandon Minter.
