Malawi Flood ReliefAll
In the first week of March, a storm system moved through parts of Malawi and Mozambique. It brought nonstop rains and heavy flooding. This caused homes to collapse and people to die in certain areas of Malawi. That storm system headed into the Indian Ocean where it developed strength and became Tropical Storm (cyclone) Idai.
GMI missionaries Eric and Mercy Mango live in one of the areas affected greatly in the first wave of the storm. There are many immediate needs in their area. The house they had been renting was damaged and they have had to find alternative lodging as a result.
We hope to raise funds to help supply plastic for those without homes as well as some new timber for roof structures, nails, and blankets to replace those which were ruined in flooding. We also want to supply some basic food and needed items for those who have lost crops, including corn and nourishing porridge flour. In the southernmost region, we want to help with seeds before it is too late to plant for the year.
