Flash floods in Malawi leave at least 200,000+ homeless and 176 are confirmed dead

Nearly 200,000 thousand people in southern Malawi have fled their homes in the wake of huge flooding across the south of the country. A state of emergency was declared on 13 January in fifteen Malawian districts affected by severe flooding.

Powerful winds and rain in recent weeks led to towns and villages being submerged across 15 districts of Malawi. The southern districts of Nsanje, Chikwawa, Phalombe and Zomba are the hardest hit.

Many displaced people are in urgent need of essential items including blankets and food packs. The full scale of the disaster is yet to emerge, as affected communities are still cut off and families continue to await rescue.

Caravan of Mercy have launched an emergency appeal to support hungry and homeless families in Malawi.
