GOAL continues to deliver aid in flood-hit Malawi

GOAL is continuing to respond to some of the worst floods that Malawi has witnessed in the past 50 years.

Up to 650,000 people have been affected country-wide following heavy rainstorms and flooding in early January. As of January 30th, at least 174,000 people have been displaced, with houses destroyed, crops swept away and water sources contaminated.

A total of 15 out of 28 districts have been affected, with 79 people confirmed dead and a further 159 people missing.

The southern region of Malawi has been the worst-affected, including GOAL’s operational districts Chikwawa and Nsanje.

As the coordination lead for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) response in both Chikwawa and Nsanje, GOAL is providing sanitation and hygiene promotion activities across 25 camps for displaced families.

GOAL is also partnering with the World Food Programme to distribute food to approximately 80,000 people in Nsanje. We have already contributed 60MT of food and non-food items (NFIs) to 2,000 families. GOAL has also contributed 600 litres of fuel for rescue operations.

Having already been acknowledged as one of the most active international non-Governmental organisations in the district by the United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC),

GOAL will continue to remain at the centre of coordination and assessment efforts at district and national level and help deliver support to as many affected families as possible in the days and weeks ahead.
