Heavy rain has caused the flooding of rivers and dams in Chikwawa, Malawi. This has led to six deaths so far. The loss of life has been confirmed by the Chikwawa police.
Among the casualties are two family members who were swept up in the flooding of the Livunzu River. Further casualties include a health worker attempting to cross the flooded Nkhathe River, and an elderly woman who had a wall collapse on her due to the heavy rain. A six year old boy also lost his life after drowning in a flooded dam.

“We are praying for those who have lost loved ones and are thinking of all affected, including the communities in Malawi that All We Can works so closely with.” – Laura Cook, Humanitarian Aid Coordinator
