Nsanje communities equipped for natural disasters

25

After Malawi felt the pinch of natural disasters early this year, a group of non-governmental organizations are working together in order to address the devastating effects of the catastrophes.

The floods that Malawi experienced early this year claimed lives and property with Nsanje district being the worst hit by floods.

Floods were as a result of heavy rains this year.

Field Manager for one of the organizations, GO Malawi in Nsanje, Chris Njema, said they are implementing projects which aim at providing support to people in disaster-prone areas.

“We have implemented a project whereby we want to provide support to people in climate vulnerable districts such as Nsanje and Mulanje,” said Njema.

Njema added that they are also implementing disaster risk reduction and early warning programs which involve capacity building activities such as training civil protection committees at district level and village level.

He said that they are supporting communities with equipment like megaphones and this will take place in four Traditional Authorities in Nsanje which are prone to natural disasters and dry spells.

  1. Akhale ndi malo awiri : nthawi ya mvula adzikakhala kumtunda , nthawi ya chilimwe adzikakhala ku phediko nalima , kuweta zifuyo & fishing . Koma nsomba , mphonda, green -maize,mbatata,beef,mbuzi ,bacon will be scarce if they entirely leave wet areas ; hence commodities and services will be dear in both : town ya Limbe , Bt etc and Rural Southern areas . Factors of demand & supply will be @ play . Palibe pa bwino kweni-kweni on both parties . It could be better to reclaim the land as they did in Netherlands/ Lowlands . They live below sea-level but Lower Shire is 20degrees above sea-level.Why then 4 (51yrs) MW Govt. could not mobilise local people to build the thick-walls to guard the waters thus reclaiming the land ? For 51yrs , these walls could be finished by now , u see . Rome wasn’t built in a day.Our leaders , when u travel abroad, see how differently some countries are conducting & managing their daily business and a borrow a leaf or their technologies. Let us do the things that we can do ourselves , and not everything donors to do 4 us .Work-up MW ! Panga tractor yolimira , MW . Work hard MW ! Merry xmas and prosperous new yr of 2016 , assuming Jesus Christ isn’t in yet to reclaim His World . Get ready 4 both/ anything ! xxxxx
