Emergencies

On the 12th of January 2010, Haiti was hit by the country’s strongest earthquake in the last 200 years. Over 220,000 people died, 300,000 were injured and over a million were left homeless.


Oikos has worked in the field since the very first moment, building and fitting dwellings with domestic kits and kitchens, creating sanitary installations and access to drinking water, and taking part in preventative measures against cholera.

Two micro-construction-industries were also created with recourse to recycled rubble.

This Oikos action has benefited 3.600 people.

In January 2008, cyclone Jokwe hit the Island of Mozambique devastating its central and northern regions. The districts of Morrumbala and Mutarara, in the provinces of Zambezia and Tete respectively, were the worst affected by the floods, which left some 285,000 people homeless and/or with no means of subsistence.

 

Oikos undertook a project to mitigate the effects of the flooding on rural communities in the valley of the Zambezi River by providing support for the resettlement of the population and the improvement of sustainable access to water and food. Over 4,000 benefiting families were able to increase their food production, and local capacities for mitigating future flooding were strengthened.
