DoDMA calls for support towards flood victims

The Director of Disaster Recovery and Resilience at the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DoDMA),Peter Chimangeni, has issued a call for more assistance for flood victims in Nkhotakota.

Currently, approximately 14,000 individuals have been impacted by the floods in the district, with 9,000 still residing in temporary camps.

Chimangeni made the appeal in Lilongwe where he received a donation of K2 million from Chikho Hotel.

Chiza Manda, the Finance and Operations Manager for the Hotel, stressed the need for collective efforts in addressing the flood disaster.

Manda noted that the government alone cannot manage the situation and that the involvement of various entities, including companies, is crucial.

“We have customers from the affected regions, and we thought it wise to donate. We cannot leave the whole responsibility to government,” he said.

According to DoDMA, the current rainy season has resulted in over 40,000 people being affected by floods, with Nkhotakota and Karonga districts experiencing particularly severe consequences.
