Authorities in Karonga district have expressed concern that individuals and organisations are not helping flood victims in the district.
In the Northern region rains are still falling heavily and people are being affected by floods even though the rainy season is coming to an end in most parts of Malawi.
The floods have affected areas along Rukuru River in Karonga North and many people have been displaced.
But District Commissioner for Karonga Rosemary Moyo has expressed worry over the lack of interest from organisations to help the displaced people.
“We are worried that no organisation has come in to assist us as people who have been affected lack a lot of things,” said Moyo.
She then appealed to well-wishers to help the affected people as their livelihood has been greatly disturbed by the floods.
Moyo said 15 families from Kapolo police post have been displaced and they are now staying at African Methodist Episcopal Church.
She said the floods have also affected the lives of children and people have lost their property including livestock.
During the last rainy season, Malawi was affected by floods with 15 districts affected and Karonga was not exceptional.
