The Japanese government has given Malawi through the World Food Programme (WFP) K1.3 billion to fight hunger in the country.

Speaking after announcing the donation in Lilongwe, Japanese Ambassador to Malawi Shuichiro Nishioka said that the assistance should benefit Malawians who are facing hunger due to last growing season’s crop failure.

The Japanese envoy also expressed confidence that the assistance will meet immediate food needs of vulnerable households while supporting their transition towards recovery and greater resilience.

Shuichiro Nishioka announced of the donation.

He added that Japan is proud to be part of a coordinated response with other donors to help Malawi during this challenging period.

“The government of Japan therefore believes in working together in agreeing to a common goal that will help eliminate hunger and malnutrition,” said Nishioka.

On his part, Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe hailed Japan’s assistance as it has come when there are some shortages in the humanitarian response.

Malawi needs to raise $303 million in order to implement its hunger response plan. Some donors have pledged to provide funds while others are implementing food security projects in affected areas.

Recently, the British Government through the Department for International Development (DFID) committed K28 billion humanitarian aid to address food shortage in the country.

  10. Well there is another K1.3 Billion that can dissappear… because surely only K1.3 Million will actually be spent on food… the rest managed away into individuals pockets and irresponsible schemes. When will donors learn 🙁 We must learn to say Thank you, but no thank you to these donors, and instead ask them to come and develop schemes themselves, teaching and showing us how to do it!
