More than 800 households have been displaced due to flooding in Phalombe, one of the affected districts in Southern Malawi. The tropical rains coupled with heavy winds have also affected more than 400 people in the district who had their roofs blown off and have since sought shelter in church and school buildings.
District officials estimate that about 170 hectares of various crops have either been washed away or submerged in the flooded water.
ADRA Malawi, with support from World Food Program is responding to the disaster by providing food items to 2000 affected people. The food items include; maize, cooking oil, soy blend and pigeon peas.
