in file CoM
Anadarko and its partners in the Mozambique LNG Project have committed to strengthen their support to the victims of cyclone Kenneth in the province of Cabo Delgado, donating, through INGC, more than 30 tons of various seeds and 140 tents for affected families, schools and health sector. This donation, estimated at more than US$200,000, follows the US $ 250,000 provided immediately after cyclone Kenneth hit Cabo Delgado.
Steve Wilson, Vice-President and Country Manager of Anadarko in Mozambique, said: “The province of Cabo Delgado is experiencing a difficult time and needs all the support that can be provided. As friends and partners of Mozambique, we are committed to playing our role, and therefore, in view of the still prevailing needs arising from cyclone Kenneth, we have decided to strengthen our support, channelling it, in particular to affected families and to priority areas such as agriculture, health and education. We hope that by supporting these key areas, we will be contributing for a quicker recovery of community services and for some level of food security in near future”.
