Help Donate Relief To Victims of Cyclone Freddy
Numerous communities in Southern Malawi have been severely impacted by Cyclone Freddy, resulting in the loss of homes and a death toll of over 400 people and more than 200 still missing. Despite efforts from the Malawian government, donors, and supporters, the situation remains overwhelming, with many communities still lacking aid due to damaged and impassable roads. In particular, Traditional Authority Likoswe in Chiradzulu and Traditional Authority Bvumbwe in Thyolo District are yet to receive any assistance. To address this urgent need, we are seeking financial aid to provide necessities and support for recovery. We appeal to generous individuals to assist us in raising funds for these affected communities.
Unfortunately, these communities consist of farmers who play a crucial role in providing horticultural products and other food items to multiple districts in the Southern region, including Blantyre city. To resume their lives, they require effective strategies to recover from the damages. While focusing on recovery, they are also concerned about medium-term strategies to tackle the impending hunger. Despite their devastation, they plan to cultivate potatoes and cassava on their remaining land to ensure food security since the maize season has already passed. Moreover, they require tree seedlings to plant along river banks and community plots and equipment to enhance their resilience.
Listed below are some of the villages affected by the disaster in Malawi's Southern region; Chinthenga, Kwanjana, Phalula 1, Phalula 2, Kapyepye, Nangumi, Mgomgomwa and Mchere.
