They also discussed the role the Church plays in promoting peace and reconciliation, especially in light of the country's violent past. Once Mozambique gained independence in 1975, it fell into a 15 year civil war. 

After introducing his team to the Pope, the president gave the Pope a gift. He gave him a colorful painting titled 'Thank you Mom,' which was done by artist André Macie. The Pope gave him a copy of his apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium and also a medallion of San Martin of Tours. 

Mozambique is one of the world's poorest countries and it has one of the highest infant mortality rates. The Church runs a series of charities in the country, to help the needy.
