Responding to floods in Malawi

Mission Moment

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.
