ERDO's ChildCARE Plus in Mozambique

ChildCARE Plus in Mozambique

Our program in Mozambique operates in the city of Maputo under the care of PAOC Global Workers, Bill and Linda Mercer.  Over 100 children are matched with caring sponsors.

Both the Matola Hope Childcare Development Centre and the Maxaquene Hope Child Development School Centre exist to provide at-risk children with daily nutritional means, education and other necessities.  Approximately 200 orphans and vulnerable children in total attend the centres and receive two warm cooked meals a day.

Community Development - Water Programs

Over several years, ERDO has created sources of clean drinking water in the areas of the Zambiezia Delta and Maputo.
