Sasol Mozambique donates US$200,000

Resultado de imagem para sasol funhalouroSasol, in partnership with Company Mozambican Hydrocarbon and the International Finance Cooperation, will donate 12 million meticais (about US$200,000 dollars) to help about five thousand families affected by drought in Funhalouro district in the southern province of Inhambane. A statement from Sasol Mozambique received by AIM yesterday says that the “support will ensure that communities in Funhalouro are able to recover their livelihoods and ensure food security” and will be spent immediately to supply food and water.“Considering our presence in Inhambane province, which is badly affected by drought, we feel the need to get involved, particularly because Mozambique is the heart of our sub-Saharan growth strategy,” says the statement. “We have a history of providing emergency support in Mozambique, from flooding to hurricanes, and we will continue to respond and help wherever possible,” it adds. The Sasol support comes two weeks after the UN expressed the need, in coordination with cooperation partners, to mobilize resources estimated at over US$200 million to meet the needs of people affected by drought in the country.
