Flooding in Malawi earlier this year destroyed homes and left many in need of shelter, food and other sanitation supplies—including toilets. The loss of latrines in a flood zone is a serious problem. When proper sanitation is no longer possible, the risk of contracting waterborne diseases such as diarrhea, malaria and even cholera increases significantly. Presbyterian World Service & Development, in collaboration with local partners and health workers in Malawi, is helping rebuild 1,000 latrines. PWS&D will continue to work to reduce the risk of disease, improve sanitation and ensure that families affected by the flooding are able to continue to rebuild their lives.
