Bristol Link with Beira

Bristol Link with Beira (BLB) is a charity that promotes people-to-people networks between the cities of Bristol in the UK and Beira in Mozambique, to empower and benefit local communities and generate links and learning between the two cities. For over 30 years Bristol Link with Beira has been supporting the Municipality of Beira and its communities in partnership with local non- governmental and community-based organisations to develop in the context of the long-term effects of historical conflict and destabilisation. Natural disasters exacerbated by Climate Change, add further challenges to the city.
