Part a summary, part excerpts from four articles in Billed Bladet #46, 2012
All written by our man in Africa Ulrik Ulriksen.

Mary left for Mozambique a few hours after the funeral of Tina Jrgensen. In the delegation with went also Minister for Development, Christian Friis Bach.
After fifteen hours in the air, she touched down in the capital of Mozambique, Maputo. Here she first visited Prime Minister Vaquina, before she went on to the Amodefa clinic. This clinic deal primarily with very young women (and girls) and aide them in avoiding sexually transmitted diseases and to avoid getting pregnant at too young an age. Here Mary spoke openly with a group of very young women about prevention, like condoms and the pill. (Called the P-pill in Danish, not sure what it’s called in English). It was a novelty for the locals that these subjects were spoken about so openly and especially by a high-ranking foreign dignitary!
Before leaving the clinic a somewhat surprised Mary was presented with and dressed in a local skirt and headscarf. (*) (Perhaps someone in the know, can tell us a little more about the outfits Mary was presented?) Then Mary posed a little shy for the photographers: “Shall I turn around”?
The first day ended with a reception in the evening hosted by the Danish embassy.

The purpose of the visit is as our reporter puts it: - …to put focus on improving the rights of women in Mozambique, so that they won’t be subjected to domestic violence and coercion and that they can decide for themselves when they want to be pregnant and how many children they want. –

On the second day Mary visited the women’s center Mulher and gave a speech: “The cause of our visit here in Mozambique is to ensure that reproductive health and rights have a high priority here in this country and in the region. That is the key to solving many other problems. And we must also convince the men that the problems must be solved. We must use our strength to convince our husbands and sons to also pass on the message to other men and their brothers and sons. Violence against women is never acceptable and we must use role models like you here today to make other women strong”.
Afterwards there was singing, drumming and dancing and Mary was again presented with a local garment. Many of the local women use the opportunity to have their picture taken with Mary.

On the third day Mary flew to the southern part of Mozambique to the Beira province and here she was received at the airport by several hundred locals, who presented flowers and sang and danced for her. Wearing her yellow and black bee-queen dress Mary was charmed by a little girl among the dancers and after having admired the dancing for a while Mary took a couple of dance steps herself before moving on. But it wasn’t just children who danced.
Ulrik Ulriksen: - But it was also lovely for Mary to meet a flock of elderly women, whose wrinkled faced told about a rough life of both civil war, natural disasters and periods of hunger. Now they too stood and danced to the pounding of the drums. –

Mary said: “Thank you for the warm welcome” and moved on to a Danida (Danish government supported development project) project, where women in order to support themselves are trained in and carry out typical male-jobs, like renovation-truck drivers or ambulance drivers. – And here Mary was taken for a ride in an ambulance.
Then on to another Danida project. This time to inaugurate a brand new crisis center for women. Here too the locals had turned up in large numbers.
Mary said in her speech: “We are very happy to be here to inaugurate something that is very important to you and to women in the area. A center for women who are victims of domestic abuse. The victims of the abuse can come to the center and have fulfilled several needs under the same roof. There are similar centers in other countries and they do make a difference. And that is going to happen in Beira as well. This is the first center of its kind in all of Mozambique. The other day I met a group of female leaders here in Mozambique. Strong and brave women, who fight for women’s rights here in Mozambique. In that context I heard a story that made me very sad.
A woman told that if her boyfriend didn’t beat her, she didn’t think he loved her. (**) That is so incomprehensibly far from the truth. Violence is never acceptable, no matter what. I will encourage you to respect each other, to respect women and to change your lives if that is one of abuse. Always say no to violence”. With these words the Danida Center was inaugurated. Then she and the Minister for Development let loose a couple of doves. The plan was for the birds to soar above the crowd and fly away. – But no, the doves decided to sit on the roof and have a closer look at the humans.
Then she visited Beira hospital. Many women in the third world suffer from a fistula, after a birth has been protracted. Most babies die and the mothers end up losing control of their bowl movements and bladder, that of course leads to stigmatization. However more and more women in Mozambique are now being offered a surgery to cure that problem. Mary visited a ward with women waiting for that surgery.
Ulrik Ulriksen: - Mary went into several of the 25 square meter big rooms at the obstetrics ward. She went among other into one (room) that was filled with twenty female patients. There the Crown Princess sat on a bed among the women in 30 degree C of humid heat and with a smell of urine and sweat hanging heavily in the confined room. The Crown Princess was deeply engulfed in the contact with the suffering women, whom she did all to console as best as she could.
The unpleasant physical surroundings and the marked stench didn’t seem to bother Mary, who fully focused and in a subdued way established contact to the fistula-afflicted women.
One of the women whom Mary spoke with was Isabella aged sixteen who had her few months old son in her arms. Isabella seemed to find a little comfort in Mary’s company and she smiled when Mary gave the little son loving attention. In return Isabella and the other women sang when Mary left them. It was a visibly moved Mary who left the ward where the many young women waited for the operation that could return a little hope to them. -
Mary was supposed to have been interviewed by DR1 at then end of the visit to the hospital but on the way to the waiting camera crew, she suddenly turned around. The interview was postponed, as it seemed, as Mary needed to digest the experience alone.

Many women in Mozambique die while giving birth and even if they wanted to avoid getting pregnant they either cannot get access to prevention or they cannot afford it.

Mary also visited the children’s ward on a rural hospital in the town of Dondo, where a multitude of new mothers and their infants waited at the clinic. The women weigh their babies themselves from a scale hanging from a beam, before going in to see the health-nurse. And here Mary was charmed by a little boy who was being weighed. She picked up the boy who looked curiously straight into the eyes of Mary.
After visiting the hospital Mary drove out to the village of Macharoco, to meet even more children.
During a short break in the schedule Mary approached some children and smiled: “Why are you not in school”? A child replied: “We are on holiday”. Mary then started to dance with some of the smaller children and encouraged the other children to join in, but nooo…. they were after all too shy.
And here Mary was again dressed in a local outfit.

A few details noted by our reporter:
Mary wore high heels during the entire visit.
At the crisis center Mary ignored the rostrum and instead stood right in front of the women, when she gave her speech.
Mary greeted so many women and children that the schedule nearly slipped.

There will be an interview with Mary in the next issue of BB.

(*) Looking at the picture in the article I notice that the skirt Mary was dressed in, is in the exact same pattern as the tablecloth behind her….Well…

(**) Alas, you don’t have to live in Mozambique to hear that. It’s well known here in DK as well and it’s very difficult for me to comprehend but it goes like this: Man beats women. And treats her very kindly afterwards (because the idiot feels guilty) and in that way she feels loved and appreciated.
In some even more bizarre cases, the woman can even provoke the man (no big problem I guess!) so that he hits her. – And treat her kindly for a period afterwards, so that she gets attention and feel loved….
And sadly enough they keep finding abusive men, because they feel insecure and are suspicious towards men who treat them normally, - without beating them!

Unfortunately these types of relationships exist all over the world and does not discriminate between poor and wealthy. I'm not sure if it was mentioned during the visit but what is Mozambique's laws on domestic or relationship violence. Is it just societal views that need to change or does legislation (not yet written) need to be created as well?



A huge thank you to Mulher for the fantastic translations, as always , and to everyone who provided pictures of Mary's visit. She does an amazing job IMO

First of all, thanks Muhler for your wonderfu work translating the informations.

So, the outfits Mary received are very but very typical in Mozambique. They're called CAPULANA, the word capulana refers to the piece of cloth (usually a rectangular piece) with that specific print: the colourfull prints refer to culture of Moambique. Capulanas may be worn in all the ways you can imagine, actually. The most typicall are obviously as skirts, headscarfes and a specific way to carry the babies with you (and is very pratical to leave your hands free), you can see a example of it in THIS pic where the woman on the left is using her capulana to hold her baby. This thing they do to carry the baby is called NENECA. You can see here (http://gramadavizinha.files.wordpres.../05/neneca.jpg) a woman doing a neneca with her capulana.
despite these 3 options being the most common, they give it many other uses, hence the tablecloth behind Mary....
A bit of history of the capulanas: the most common version is that they were brought to Mozambique from India by the portugueses who were the main responsible for introducing this kind of cloth in Africa (it is worn in other countries but each country has a different print). the cloth is not soft, it's actually quite rough but that is actually one of the advantages. Since it is not fragil, it lasts and lasts and his strong enough to carry babies (that sometimes are not that young so weight a bit).
The streets of Mozambique are full of people wering them (notice that men also wear it). They are very cheap, easy to find and because of their versatility are a very good option for poor women. But upper classes also wear them but more for fashion purposes.

I must say people from Mozambique are very proud of this piece of cloth that constitutes part of their identity as a country. I have many friends from Mozambique living here in Portugal and all the girls have many capulanas. Tradition say that in Mozambique every wooman should always carry one capulana in her bag.
I'm sure the woman were very proud of presenting Mary with a capulana.

well, google will help you to find more images about it:
https://www.google.com/search?q=capu...w=1280&bih=671


Hope you enjoyed the capulanas story

Thanks Muhler for your translations always appreciated.

Julliette, thanks for the very interesting information on the capulanas, I think Mary received a number of them, and was always proud to put them on. They are so colorful and lovely .

Also thanks to all that posted pics and links.

There have been so many wonderful pics on this trip, have really enjoyed them all, brings a smile to your face when looking at them. IMO this has been a fantastic trip - and really great job by Crown Princess Mary.

THANK YOU Muhler, for your wonderful translation of an important visit. I think you point out correctly that the Princess' visit is also meant to be an educational one, informing women that they DO have a choice in their relationships, thus empowering them to change their own lives for the better. The domestic abuse you describe indeed still exists all over the world and, I am convinced, only happens as the result of a cycle of disturbed relationships that can only be broken through education, such as the Crown Princess is providing in Mozambique. Bravo!

You said it perfectly Gerry
When i first ready that Mary was going to Mozambique i thought her trip would be similar to the one Frederik did to Mozambique last year which focused on harvest and wells?

Its was nice to see Mary focusing on these issues (women's reproductive rights and domestic abuse)
