Plan Malawi Humanitarian Response Coordinator for Mulanje district Douglas Nantapa country said the organisation is committed to contribute to the response to the floods which have left many people, especially women and girls in Malawi, in need of basic necessities.

Nantapa said Plan Malawi is ready to support the efforts of the Malawi Government, the international community and those affected by this devastating disaster, especially women and girls, who, in disasters of this magnitude, are the worst affected.

He also said Plan Malawi is planning a longer-term response to help affected families recover from the devastating effects of the flood disaster.”

Melifa Jamu from Hiwa village thanked Plan Malawi  for the donation, which she said will help her especially the blankets and mattress after losing eveything during the floods.

Plan Malawi launched emergency response to flood victims in  Mulanje district in January at  Mthuruwe Primary School.

During the launch, the  Country director for Plan Malawi, Lilly Omondi said her organization has set aside K100 million to assist flood victims.

She said the organisation had planned to support over 3600 households translating to 20,000 people and particularly 2,000 children in Mulanje alone and then scale up to other districts.

Omondi said her organization would construct additional pit latrines and provide safe water in schools where the victims camped to protect children from health risks.
