MALAWI - Food Crisis in South following Cyclone Freddy

The people of Southern Malawi are experiencing a dangerous food crisis following cyclone Freddy that hit the region in February/March 2023 (the longest storm ever recorded in the Southern Hemisphere) and the major currency devaluation that followed. Not only are people dying of hunger, but also through crocodile attacks as they enter the water in search of food.

Our field partner, Ps Arnold Thomeyo, has been collecting rice and beans to feed 200 people once a month but the situation is desperate, with children and elderly most affected. He says,

“Please for pray for us. Our people here are hit of hunger and are going into the water to get water lilies to eat as food as you can see especially women and many of them have been killed by the crocodiles.”

Lloyd Tabatha, director, MVSouthAfrica added,

“the pastors there are trying, but it’s not enough and we need a solution. we agreed the best sustainable solution will be to get funds and plant rice, beans and other vegetables. There’s land and water only if we can get funds for seeds and fertilizer. If God blesses us with funds to get more seeds it with be helpful.”
