Our initial assessment has revealed communities that are suffering serious hardship. Stored food supplies have been destroyed causing immediate food shortages and looking to the next 12 months, the very promising harvest has been ruined by persisting flood water. Houses have collapsed or sustained damage to the thatched rooves only capable of withstanding short term rain. And with little clean water available, there is a high risk of diseases such as cholera.
Takondwa and Talandira
Takondwa and Talandira will be three years old in June. The twins moved back to their home village of Ngabu, Chikwawa last year and were being monitored closely by Open Arms. Their guardian has very little money to support them.
When Mrs Phiri visited them following the floods, their home and food supply had been badly affected. She reported that they will need additional support and monitoring to avoid malnutrition and other preventable diseases as well as longer term support from Open Arms to repair their home and get back on their feet.
