The MCFEA has been supporting WaterAid, an organisation dedicated to the provision of safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world's poorest communities since 2003 when a five-year commitment was made to support work in Mozambique.
The new commitment of GBP 72,300 from the MCFEA will look at expanding the work in Maputo in 2008 through the support of three Maputo-based partner organisations, Estamos, Pamodzi and ADASBU.
In addition to the above, the MCFEA will also be looking for further partnership opportunities in the African region in 2008, due to increased funding of GBP 60,000 from Mitsubishi Corporation.
The MCFEA also announced a grant of Eu39,530 (just over GBP27,000) to the Regional Environmental Centre for Central and Eastern Europe (REC), Bulgaria Branch, for a one-year project entitled "West Balkan Mountain for Kids".
Established in the UK in 1992, the MCFEA is primarily an educational charity.
