One of Malawian bloggers Athena Tales has made the appeal through a web link http://www.gofundme.com/malawimatters  she says has been created to raise funds for Malawi during this difficult time.

This is worst flood in the history of the country forcing the government to declare a state of emergency. As of Tuesday, January 13, 15 of 28 districts in the country have been declared disaster areas.

According to the information of the appeal page Malawi is in dire need of international aid as over 100 are feared to have died when villages were flooded.

It says in the southern region of the people, livestock, crops and homes were swept away by flood waters. Some people died as houses collapsed on them.

“This appeal is for those living in the diaspora, especially Malawians and friends of Malawi, to make donations which will go directly to helping the people who were heavily hit by this disaster”.

All for Malawi a non-profit organization set up in the USA will work in association with people in Malawi on the ground who are eager to start the relief efforts.

“There is a group of people who are finding out exactly what the immediate needs for the people hardest hit by the flood will require in order to start putting their lives back together.

“This effort by the people in the diaspora as well as those in Malawi will be very transparent and very efficient  in making sure that the funds go to where they are needed most. As well as providing financial aid, some of the funds raised will be used to purchase basic everyday needs such as blankets, food, toiletries etc,” reads the appeal page .

    Might it be worth mentioning that the GoFundMe page was actually set up by Ms Celina Mlusu and that Ms Tales simply shared it?

    Isn’t this floodgate? Too many bogus charities scrambling for donations for flood victims. Shame on you! Let people donate to govt which has the knowledge and structures on where and how to deliver the relief supplies.

    These people in diaspora feel alienated in most circumstances. We treat them as foreigners because we envy their successes. We have a lot of people in diaspora but most feel uninvited in the affairs of Malawi.
    We should allow dual citizenship for the purposes of such circumstances. We need more than aid from these brothers and sisters abroad. These people have exposure and better approach to most things because they see things from a better angle. We need to include them positively.
    Look at how developed are countries that allow dual nationality.

    On the other hand, this PP government will loot the coffers and entirely blame this catastrophe. Last governments established National Disaster Preparedness. Where is this entity now?? Where has the funding gone?? Look at the books and tell us.
    We should not just cry for aid while we’re looting our meagre propensities.

  13. Tazingodyana ndi mzungu wakoyo iwe. Shaft ya Mr. Tales yakoma ndiye wati utibele a Malawi upeze potchukira?

  14. Her name is Tales. Why should we trust her. She could be telling us tales about what she intends to do with the money. Besides, with her foreign surname why should we trust that she has genuine concern for malawians? If her surname was malawian I could have fallen for it.

    Malawi as a country has totally failed.The economy is in shambles.Educated people seems only to be contented by the acquired Mzungu’s Papers.All those economists churned in this country seems to hv no solution for this country.All we see is our politicians with fattens necks and fatten bellies like pregnant women arguing in parliament on useless things.They only seem to be prepared for tribal groupings like Mulhako wa Alomwe where they mercilessly siphon funds from NAC and support archaic outdated culture.What we have known as a country is to beg beg beg.This culture is even passed to our kids not be self reliant.The little money in the govt coffers benefits a few greedy people who have no care for an ordinary person.What they care is to drive massive cars and to build massive houses from illgotten riches.If all the cashgate money was recovered the lives of these poor people designed by a few selfish people would really change our country.You will find that even that relief money is going into other people’s pockets,unless those donors come and witness for themselves that those relief items are reaching the intended recepients.We have really failed as a country.
