From NYC to Switzerland, kids do bake sales for families in Mozambique and Care for Life

By selling muffins, cake and play dough, two little girls from different sides of the world raised hundreds of dollars to help those who are suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Idai in Mozambique. Care for Life, a non-profit based in Arizona, has been working in Mozambique for almost 20 years. With casualties still being recorded and hundreds without power, water or food, every dollar donated helps Care for Life’s emergency relief efforts tremendously.

Six-year-old Zara, who lives in Manhattan, New York, worked hard to raise money to help the victims of Hurricane Idai. This natural disaster is one of the worst weather events ever to occur in Mozambique. It is estimated that 90 percent of the city has been destroyed. Because of Zara, citizens in Mozambique will receive life-saving aid.

“My friends and I heard about the cyclone and wanted to help. We decided to run a bake sale on our street in Manhattan. We hope this money helps,” said young Zara. 

On the other side of the world, in Switzerland, Annina also raised money to help those in Mozambique. Annina sold slime, play dough and cake. By doing something small, these girls will make a huge difference to those in Mozambique. They took a few hours out of their day to help provide life-saving aid to others. To contribute like Zara and Annina, donations can be made at as well as

Care for Life has 30 staff members on the ground ready to distribute aid. Monetary donations are most needed and will be used directly for relief efforts designed to prevent any further loss of life.
