Malawi & Mozambique Update


During the first two weeks of March, heavy rain fell day and night for 7 days in Malawi and Mozambique. The resulting flood killed thousands, many houses fell, and crops were washed away in many areas, leaving thousands homeless and starving. The two countries had no time to recover from this disaster, as the following week Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, resulting in many more deaths and homeless people. Cyclone Idai is the largest cyclone ever to occur in the southern hemisphere. Many people in the 3 countries are currently dying from cholera. However, fortunately, so far, no-one in RCC has suffered this fate.

In RCC in Malawi, more than 492 families were left homeless. RCC in Mozambique more than 430 families were left homeless. Some families have been temporarily housed in schools or in refugee camps. Significant funds were despatched by RCC Australia to provide food, blankets and shelter for those families most at risk.

The photos below show food, blankets and sheets of plastic being delivered to some of the families, especially in Thyolo. In some areas photos were not taken because of no power to charge phones. The saints in Malawi and Mozambique are still rejoicing in the Lord and extremely grateful to the saints in the west for their generous contributions. Please continue to be generous and keep the wonderful saints there in your prayers.
