About Country

Mozambique faces significant humanitarian challenges, including natural disasters, food insecurity, and the impact of conflict and violence. Cyclones, floods, and droughts occur regularly in Mozambique, displacing thousands of people and causing widespread destruction to homes, crops, and infrastructure. Additionally, the northern regions of Mozambique have experienced a surge in violence and insurgency in recent years, leading to displacement and humanitarian needs. International aid organizations, along with the Mozambican government and local communities, work to provide humanitarian assistance to those affected by crises, including emergency food aid, shelter, healthcare, and education. However, funding shortages and access constraints often limit the scale and effectiveness of humanitarian response efforts in Mozambique

Context in Country

The Mozambique Mission, initiated in early 2022 and completed on December 20th, 2022, was a crucial initiative to address urgent medical needs in the country. Located in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, this mission focused on treating cataracts in vulnerable populations. 

The intervention is primarily aimed at treating cataracts in vulnerable populations. The UOSSM Cataract Treatment campaign sought to address the high number of cataract cases in Mozambique, where there was a lack of funds for surgeries and related costs. Specialized doctors, including those from outside Mozambique, dedicated their time and skills to perform necessary surgeries. 

Implemented in collaboration with the Islamic Development Bank, the project specifically targeted providing 1000 cataract operations in Mozambique free of charge. 

The impact of the mission was significant, with over a thousand cataract patients benefiting from the campaign, receiving necessary surgeries and proper treatment. The goal of the intervention was to alleviate the suffering of cataract patients, contributing to an improvement in health status and well-being within vulnerable communities in Mozambique. The dedication and involvement of specialized doctors in the mission significantly contributed to the success of the project.
