After The Storm Is Gone...

The death toll has risen above 1000 and the United Nations has described Cyclone Idai as "one of the deadliest storms on record in the southern hemisphere".

Last month cyclone Idai crashed into southeast Africa, making landfall on the night of March 14. The storm had devastating effects effects on the region, bringing heavy winds and rains, effecting Mozambique , Zimbabwe & Malawi.


The death toll has risen above 1000 and the United Nations has described Cyclone Idai as "one of the deadliest storms on record in the southern hemisphere".


The storm has now passed, but its devastating effects which can be felt here in Malawi prove there is still so much work to be done. Malawi has appealed for international aid for nearly a million people affected by floods from Cyclone Idai. Authorities say people in cyclone-affected areas are in dire need of food, water, shelter, and sanitation. Official figures show the cyclone killed 60 people, injured more than 600 and displaced hundreds of thousands, many to temporary camps.


It’s often a sad reality that once media coverage dies down, so does donar support. There is so much work to be done on the ground but the urgent immediate needs for food, sanitation and medication still exist today.



As we continue to work to tackle and alleviate child poverty we also want to shed light on some of the challenges faced here by much of the population. As we continue with our daily feeding programs we also want to continue to provide shelter and stability for street children and the most effected by poverty.


We can do none of this without you much needed support.


Most sincerely
