Effects of Cyclone Freddy Still Haunting WVM
World Vision Malawi says a spate of natural disasters that rocked the country in 2023 have greatly affected the implementation of some projects they are running in the country.
World Vision Malawi Director of Programmes, Charles Chimombo, says despite these setbacks, there is no project that is under threat of closure.
“One of the projects that has been greatly affected is that we have been implementing in the traditional authority Njema in Mulanje, where the damage due to cyclone Freddy is so huge,” said Chimombo.
The Njema project, with components of water and agriculture, among others, is targeted to benefit about 1,000 households.
Said Chimbo: “It is pleasing to note that our stakeholders are doing commendable work in the districts where they are implanting their projects.”
At the end of each year, World Vision Malawi and its partners exchange notes on the progress of projects they are running in various sectors.
Salima District Council is one of the partners of the charitable organization, and some of the projects being implemented in the district include wash, malaria, and disaster risk management, among others.
Director of Administration at the council, Yohane Bilesi, says with support from its partners, including World Vision Malawi, they are reaching out to many people, despite the fact that their needs for support are in high demand.
On Tuesday this week, World Vision Malawi interacted with its stakeholders, implementing different projects in the central and northern regions.
