Creative Justice:
Raising Funds & Awareness for Mozambique

Thank you for making a donation to the Mozambique Disaster Relief fund. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by MSJ’s disaster relief fund, and then donated through Direct Relief, an award-winning and highly rated disaster relief organization.

On June 14th our church’s youth painted a massive mural to honor the people of Mozambique and raise awareness of how racism and climate change fused to make a terrible disaster even worse. Click here to read more more about the disaster and how the youth have been discussing it.

Our youth asked the congregation to pledge a small donation per square foot of mural created. Within one hour, they ended up painting a beautiful 62 square feet! The mural was on display on June 16th at coffee hour, and will be on view in the Education hallway soon.

If you did not make a pledge before our students painted the mural, please consider making a donation today. A pledge of just $1 or $2 per square foot – coming out to $62 or $124 – would go an incredibly long way in assisting the people left most vulnerable by this tragedy.

In addition, MSJ’s disaster relief fund will match the donation you make dollar for dollar, and we don’t want to leave any money on the table. Thank you for your donation. Every one of us at The Riverside Church is grateful for your generous contribution to Mozambique’s recovery.
