So proud of the leadership shown by the RCCL Committee in Mozambique.
The Committee, along with Madam Chief Helena Chivite of the Sabie Government Post, used funds provided by Wild and Free Foundation to purchase and deliver food and supplies to 35 families in need during quarantine. Each family received: rice; flour; beans; sugar; salt; cooking oil; chicken broth; matches; soap; and surgical masks. Well done RCCL Committee!!
Assessment of the campaign for the distribution of food products and hygiene materials to members of the RCCL Community.
In response to the letter of request for support to members, employees and players of the championship RCCL-Mozambique in which we requested help in the purchase of food and hygiene products in order to overcome the national state of emergency in Mozambique (Quarantine).
The organizing committee of the championship, received from the direction of the Wild And Free Foundation the value 224,000.00MT corresponding to the value of the support for the quarantine phase, which was distributed in:
Transport - 11,000.00MT; Food products and hygiene equipment - 213,000.00MT which corresponds to the following per family:
Rice; Flour; Beans; Sugar; Salt; Cooking Oil; Matches packaging; Broth - The Benny - Chicken Stock; Bingo soap bar; Surgical masks; Cloth masks.
The distribution process began on Saturday 25 April 2020 and was attended by the Head of the Administrative Post of Sábiè, Mrs. Helena Alfredo Chivite, where we covered 20 families from the villages of Sábiè cede, Chavane and Ligongolo.
The second day, April 26, 2020, continued in the villages of Baptine, Mavunguane and Mucacaza, covering 5 families.
On the third day, 27 April 2020, the process ended in the village of Chihahene for 2 families and 8 members of the commission.
The process of allocating food products and cleaning materials benefited 35 families, where the selection criterion was based on:
- Families with young players, practitioners and football fans with special needs (physical disabilities);
- Players who have had serious injuries that make it impossible to return to the football fields;
- The family of the youngster who lost his life in training during last season 2019;
- Player who had his home completely destroyed by fire;
- People who suffer from chronic illnesses;
- Families whose income is very low (Vulnerable).
According to the beneficiaries, the campaign is welcome, as the families of the players and organizers of the RCCL championship felt themselves being cherished and within the Wild And Free Foundation project.
The products were distributed at a time when families were desperate with the national state of emergency, as local businesses were closing down at this stage and families could not afford to purchase food and hygiene supplies. And according to the Head of the Administrative Post of Sábiè, Madam Chief Helena Chivite, the project is welcome, because it has come to give a hand to the local government, since the Post has no way to support local families in food products and hygiene materials, so this initiative is to be praised, and also asking the WFF not to stop here, because there are more people in the Post who need mainly hygiene materials (masks and soap) in this phase of national emergency
The members of the committee are grateful from the bottom of their hearts for the support provided by the WFF management and its partners, as the campaign to distribute these products brought smiles of joy at a time when the country and the world are weeping for human lives lost due to covid-19.
You have a greater appreciation for your people, because despite the difficulties they face at this stage, you have extended a hand to the Mozambican people in particular from the administrative post of Sábiè.
We are flattered by your support and hope that we can be together later this year at the opening, during and at the end of the 2020 championship, because where we have been the communities have asked about the return of sporting activities.
Words to thank are scarces, the feeling we have is greater and we embrace the initiative.
