High-res, black and white prints to go under the hammer to aid Mozambique victims

Portuguese-American photographer, Martim Merelles, who spend a year in the beautiful country of Mozambique where he came to know and love the kind people there, will be selling a few high-res, black and white prints that he took while there to help the victims of Cyclone Idai.

Juliana Meirelles, the sister to the photographer said in statement that every single cent will go towards the International Federation of Red Cross of Mozambique.

“We have already raised over US$1000 from friends and family alone, but I though I would send this information along to a broader audience, as there is no amount that would be too much, because the people of Mozambique need help and they need it quickly,” she added.

She urged all those who are interested in donating, buying prints, or to help get the word out there, to go to there PayPal link,, for all the details.

“We would greatly appreciate anything you can do to help, furthermore this is not a PR stunt, nor a scam, just one person trying to make an immediate difference, therefore if you have no interests in buying prints and rather donate directly to other fund, I hope this message at least encourages you to do so, if you have not done so already,” she emphasised.

She highlighted that while prayers and thoughts are always welcome, they are simply not enough, because thousands of life’s have been left devastated in Mozambique as a result of Cyclone Idai.
