It’s the rainy season now in Mozambique. And after the lack of rain in the past few months leaving everyone sweating and the ground gasping for water, the season is a welcomed friend. But this year the rain brought the whole family and huge parts of the country have been overwhelmed by all these precipituous relatives pounding on their doors.

So hard in fact, many people have lost houses, doors and all.

Northern Mozambique and in particular the Moma district – district of our mainland camp – were hit hard.

According to, 4790 people were affected. 958 houses were destroyed, as well as 10 mosques, four churches, 24 shops and eight classrooms.

Jack’s response to my questions about all the rain?

“yes, it’s very wet”

And he still managed to find a couple of hours of sunshine to play a bit of golf.
