Malawi Office of Gift of the Givers Appeals for Relief Aid Following Disastrous Flooding

Imtiaz Sooliman and the Gift of the GiversFollowing catastrophic flooding, the Malawi office of Gift of the Givers has issued an appeal for aid.

The Gift of the Givers is an international disaster response organisation. The inspiring story of the good work that the organisation does is told in Imtiaz Sooliman and the Gift of the Givers: A Mercy to All, by Shafiq Morton.

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has declared a “state of national disaster”, and is appealing for relief aid from local and international humanitarian organisations in order to meet the basic needs of people who have been displaced by flooding.

The Gift of the Givers organisation in Malawi has shared a video that shows the widespread devastation being wreaked by the flooding.

Read the letter from the Gift of the Givers Malawi office:

We hope and pray the New Year finds you and all at Gift of the Givers in good health.

However, in Malawi, we have begun the year on a gloomy note arising from the onset of incessant rainfall leading to flooding that has destroyed thousands of homes. The catastrophe has left 48 people dead and over 70,000 people stranded without food or shelter.
