Ecuador

Due to torrential rain, many rivers flood at the end of January in Ecuador’s Cotopaxi Province, damaging roads and displacing residents in Pujilí County. Tzu Chi volunteers travel to the area to assess the disaster immediately after roads reopen on March 15. Photo/Tzu Chi Ecuador

Mozambique

On April 12, Tzu Chi holds a ground-breaking ceremony for the third Tzu Chi village in Mozambique, the Metuchira Great Love Village. Local government officials and developers attend and watch a dramatic performance recounting the differing stories of two families that previously received a house from Tzu Chi. One family was content, worked diligently, and took good care of the home, so they lived happily; the other family lazed about so that even though they now had a house, their lives remained destitute.
