Between 1977 and 1992 up to a million Mozambicans died from fighting and famine in a war that ruined the economy and much of the countryside. The country was left with a legacy of landmines and amputees. Mozambique has been battered by colonial rule, civil war and famine. But since a peace deal ended 16 years of civil conflict the country has made big strides, becoming a magnet for foreign investment.
A political settlement in 1992 was followed by stability and rapid economic growth for one of the world's poorest countries. However, it suffered serious setbacks when in 2000 and 2001 it was hit by floods which affected about a quarter of the population and destroyed much of its infrastructure. In 2002, a severe drought hit many central and southern parts of the country, including previously flood-stricken areas. Poverty remains widespread, with more than 50% of Mozambicans living on less than $1 a day.

The aim of the Okalawo Clinic is to make disciples by demonstrating the love of God in practical ways like improving their own health through education as well as a variety of medical care. With this clinic they will be able to reach out to women who are pregnant, provide immunizations for children, conduct various medical tests, educate people about hygiene, disease prevention, and simple treatments that will save many lives, and to also train Community Health workers that will reach out to the surrounding communities.
