January’s intense rains resulted in extensive and severe flooding in Malawi. According to a February 3rd United Nations report, 638,000 people have been affected by flooding in 15 districts. There are 79 deaths reported, and another 153 people missing. Some 63,976 hectares of land has been flooded.
ERDO is working with two PAOC Global Worker partners in Malawi to bring relief to children and their families: Kathy Bowler from Children of Blessing Trust, in Lilongwe and Rev.Harlyn Purdy, in Blantyre.
ERDO’s response through Kathy Bowler is now complete. School roofs and the clinic were damaged in the heavy rains so ERDO has assisted in repairing these through funds already raised for this flood emergency.
There is more work to be done so we are counting on supporters like you to assist in the relief effort.
We need your help to raise $22,000 of the immediately needed $30,000 to work with Rev. Purdy and the local church to provide 500 families in the hardest hit areas of Blantyre city with:
We aren’t asking for the full $30,000 because City Pentecostal Church in Blantyre, Malawi is raising a portion of the funds needed and we celebrate their desire to contribute to the need. Please give quickly and generously to this appeal for help. We are already working through the community committees and chiefs to identify the families in most need and want to rush our help to them.
