Imagine the huge challenges presented across more than 800 Christian congregations in three vast dioceses doing mission & holistic Community Development in two of the world’s poorest countries. MANNA’s work is needed today more than ever. You can help.

MANNA works in partnership with the 3 dioceses:

Mozambique – Lebombo

Bishop: The Right Reverend Carlos Simão Matsinhe 

The Diocese of Lebombo’s beginnings go back a long way to the 1890’s. It is located in the southern part of the country and is divided into 6 archdeaconries: Inhambane District, Limpopo, Maciene, Maputo District, Pungoe and Umbeluzi. Lebombo has 300 congregations and 50 priests and like both Niassa and Angola is growing. It’s community development work comes under the banner of Anglican Social Action and is involved in education and health care. It has plans to build seminary to train more priests and grow the kingdom of God in depth and numbers across the diocese.

Mozambique – Niassa

Bishop: The Right Reverend Vicente Msossa 

Suffragan Bishop:  The Right Reverend Manuel Ernesto 

The Diocese of Niassa, an Anglican diocese of Mozambique is vast. Located north of it’s sister diocese, Lebombo, it is divided into 6 archdeaconries: Cobue, Lunho, Lichinga, Milange, Rio Chire and Lurio. It is twice the size geographically of the UK and has 442 congregations, over 65,500 worshippers and 61 priests. Niassa Diocese has grown a vibrant and extensive community development programme which works with HIV, nutrition, agriculture, education, water and sanitation.

Angola: The Diocese of Angola

Bishop: The Right Reverend André Soares 

The Diocese of Angola, part of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa is a very large diocese, encompassing the entire country of Angola. It is the newest of the 3 dioceses and is divided into four archdeaconries, Luanda, Lukunga Lozi (Songo), Nzadi a Lukiki and Uíge. It has a total of 63 congregations with 58,000 members. Like the dioceses in Mozambique, some of the churches are active in healthcare, education and community development. The Nora Sturges Health Centre in Lobito, established in 2003 is one of such projects.

CEML’s Dormitory to House Next Generation of Angolan Doctors has Been Completed!

CEML’s new resident doctor dormitory, designed to accommodate Angolan doctors involved in CEML’s new clinical training program, has finally been completed! The funding for this building has been underwritten by CEML’s foundational partner, Samaritan's Purse

Currently, more than 300 Angolan doctors have graduated in country without obtaining sufficient clinical skills, due to the absence of quality, hands-on training programs in Angolan medical schools. The majority of national doctors lack sufficient clinical skills to properly address the plethora of healthcare pathologies present in rural Angola; the area of Angola’s greatest medical need where some of the worst healthcare indices on a global scale are present.

In response to the urgent need of sufficiently trained doctors in Angola, CEML will facilitate a comprehensive skills-enhancing training program, training national doctors to begin to resolve the healthcare crisis afflicting the sparsely served rural communities. Training under the tutelage of Dr. Stephen James Foster, Dr. Annelise Olson and Dr. Ralph Zachariah in a yearlong intensive course, the MD graduates will have improved clinical skills to enable them to more readily recognize common complications amongst infants, children, men and women.

Angola faces a significant shortage of physicians, with only 2,000 in the entire country, according to WHO data. Whereas the United States has a physician to population ratio of 1:384, Angola has a ratio of 1:6000; a ratio that is below average for the Africa region. Angola has one of the highest net emigration rates for doctors in the world; 70% of Angolan doctors have left Angola for other countries.

CEML looks forward to the opportunity to impact and improve the Angolan healthcare situation on this countrywide scale.
