The cyclone and flooding has led Malawi to declare a state of disaster.
The country is already battling the worst Cholera outbreak in its recorded history. Floodwaters could cause damage to health facilities and increase the spread of the disease. The cyclone is creating additional life-threatening challenges to those who are already facing hunger and extreme poverty.
In the aftermath of this natural disaster the only hope for families to survive is to salvage their livelihoods.
The devastating impacts of this disaster will propel the women we work with into even deeper poverty.
Farming and food production are the main sources of income for our clients and their agricultural businesses ensure entire villages have access to food. Without the resources to rebuild after the cyclone’s destruction, families will starve.
Emergency capital will ensure our clients can continue running their businesses and feeding their communities
The situation in Malawi is dire. Women are losing their businesses to the floods and the aftermath of the disaster will be extensive and costly. Our top priority is to ensure that the women have emergency capital to save their businesses. Access to funds to get their livelihoods back on track will help them afford the medical treatment their families need to stay healthy and safe.
Training and support through crisis
To ensure the survival of their businesses, we are offering the women extra guidance and support in restructuring or diversifying.
