15 tonnes of food and goods for cyclone Ana victims

Today Ahava received no less than 15 tonnes of food and goods from another organization in Malawi to benefit people affected by cyclone Ana and the flooding.

Food distribution on 21 February

We were able to give food distribution to four villages that were greatly affected by Cyclone Ana. We wanted to do this last Saturday but due to the rain we decided to postpone it until today. Unfortunately the cooking oil and the blankets were not delivered on time to Ahava so all these people (250 […]

Cyclone Damako

The past few days we had to deal with the consequences of Cyclone Damako. Again our area was hit by a lot of rain which again causes many problems for the poor people around Ahava. Today we saw many children under the age of 5 with serious diarrhoea in the clinic. The water has risen […]

Aid for 10 villages, 300 families

This afternoon was our first food distribution to families from 10 villages around Ahava, all affected by Cyclone Ana. There is so much need, but as an organization we have chosen to provide for the basic necessities of life: food, a blanket and perhaps in the future seeds so that people can start planting again.

Food and goods arrived

Today the lorry with food would arrive at Ahava for the people who have nothing or almost nothing to eat as a result of the flooding. Between 3 and 4pm it was said. I try to arrange it always in a way that when the villagers receive something, they will do something for it as […]
