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.
