LSN Mozambique
MozambiqueLSN established a Network office in Quelimane, located in the Zambezia Province, in Northern Mozambique in April 1999.  The Network works with civilian and military landmine survivors in four districts of Zambezia Province: Quelimane city, Ile, Maganja da Costa, and Nicoadala.

LSN-Mozambique helps survivors in these provinces access services that provide mobility devices, health care, and vocational training. The Network also provides direct assistance, including covering the cost of prostheses, house repairs or emergency food aid. To date, the LSN-Mozambique Network has developed a strong partnership with the Mozambican government and other local and international organizations.
