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!
