Church reaches out to flood victims in KK

About 150 households that were displaced by floods in the area of Traditional Authority Nkhanga in Nkhotakota District are appealing for support to rebuild their houses and resume farming activities.

The flood victims, mainly the elderly, are still being accommodated at Chipukweche Camp in the area.

Representatives of the group, Alatia Alli and John Maulidi, have told MBC Digital that they are facing challenges to recover from the disaster as they lost all their property.

This came out when the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) donated food and non food items to them.

RCCG Pastor in-Charge in the country, Jacob Aderibigbe Adekunle, says the support is in response to the call from the people through government, pointing out that as a church, they felt compelled to ease the suffering by sharing the little they have.

Head of social welfare and public response in the Church, Maggie Chaika Kubwalo, says they will continue to mobilize resources for the needy as pert of supporting government’s efforts in reaching out to those in need.

Nkhotakota District Council Disaster Risk Management Officer, John Manda, says the council has engaged traditional leaders to allocate new land to those that have their sites no longer suitable for settlement.

Nkhotakota is one of the districts that were recently affected by flash floods.
