Mozambique portraits

I photographed these members of an Emergency Response Association in the Govuro region of Mozambique. Each member of the association has a specific job to do in the case of a cyclone emergency. TrĂ³caire work alongside local organizations to help educate and support local communities to deal with the threat of cyclones.

Natalia Barira Ndakambayi (45) and Joaquim Antonio Ngueta (30) with megaphones and a bicycle which are use to warn the local community of an imminent cyclone.

Mario Jasse Natal (39) with a kerosene lamp.

Adelaide Josel (22) and baby Altenina Jone with cards used to educate people about what to do in the event of flooding.

Joao Jeque (40) listens to a wireless radio, where local radio stations give up-to-date weather forecasts with cyclone warnings.

Gina Antonio Mandima (35), leader of the association, uses a machete cut back fallen trees and branches.
