The February CAMM Update has just been posted! The spring rains create difficulties when they only last for a few hours, but when the rains last for days they are devastating. As many of you are already aware, Malawi experienced severe flooding in January. Although we’ve had a few nasty storms to start the year in our area, thankfully the terrible flooding that is causing such unimaginable loss in the south has not directly impacted our clinic sites or where we live in Lilongwe. We have been able to get safely to and from clinic, and the villages we serve were not in the area hit hardest by the rains. However, in southern Malawi the UN is now estimating that 230,000 people have been displaced in and approximately 158,000 acres of land were damaged. For a people that rely heavily on subsistence farming and are already at a high risk for malnutrition and malaria, this type of disaster can be particularly devastating. The crops that had just begun growing have been washed away and the waters that carried away their primary source of food now provide breeding grounds for the malaria carrying mosquitos.
