Staggering Statistics

Today I was doing some online research and came across some staggering statistics about Mozambique from the CIA Factbook website (2007).
  • 12.5 % of Mozambicans are infected with HIV
  • 18% of the population is Muslim
  • Life Expectancy is average of 40 years old
  • 23% of children under the age of 5 suffer from malnutrition
  • 101 out of every 1,000 children die at birth

Sobering to think of the difficulties that Mozambicans face on a daily basis!
