Fr. Chimombo said the Bishops, led by the ECM Chairman, Archbishop Thomas Luke Msusa will first visit the district of Thyolo.

“During the visit, the Bishops are expected to present some of the relief items which were collected from all parishes and institutions in the country and by the Caritas family to cater for flood affected dioceses.

“Through its partners and the Church Structures, the ECM has managed to raise money, clothes, food and non-food items valued at MK1 billion just for short term sustenance of human life,” Fr. Chimombo said

President Peter Mutharika declared 16 of the country’s 28 districts ‘disaster areas’ and appealed for international assistance.

Pope Francis through the office of Apostolic Nunciature in Malawi conveyed a message of solidarity to the people of Malawi. In his message of solidarity, the Pope assured Malawians of his blessings and prayers.

Support from the Catholic Church will also go to flood affected communities in Chikwawa, Nsanje, Zomba, Machinga, Mangochi, Phalombe and Ntcheu among other areas.

  15. jasi says:

    @peter. Catholic church is not holy. Drunkards, womanisers and name it. Where is holiness there. Ask your bishops how many bastards children each has fathered in his life with sisters? This is a scandalous church

    1. ANALYST says:

      Jasi, you dont know the word “Holy” because it has more meanings than “without sin”. HOLY also means “set apart” – which is the correct meaning of the word HOLY here. Despite having sinners as you claim, the Catholic Church remains HOLY (set apart) by God. Actually, the sinners in the Catholic Church makes it the Church as Jesus intended (those who are not sick do not need a physician but the sick) – therefore, the Church through Jesus is like a physician (Doctor) for the sinners
