Drought and deluge leave 4 million Malawians food insecure
Mega drought and deluge have left about 4 million people food insecure and children at a high risk of malnutrition and disease across Malawi (population: ~ 15 million). Severe flooding, triggered by extreme rain events, has destroyed homes, crops, roads and any semblance of public infrastructure.
- Flooding has displaced tens of thousands of people leaving them without food, shelter, clothing or medical supplies in the landlocked country in southeast Africa.
- The flooding has also compromised access to safe water, sanitation and overall hygiene in the affected communities, said UNICEF.
- “A continuing food crisis in Malawi afflicts more than 4 million people – and more than a million of them are children under age five or pregnant women. Food insecurity is not only a major cause of malnutrition, but has also worsened the risk for diseases.”
- “We remain on high alert as the flooding spreads to other areas,” said the UNICEF Country Representative in Malawi.
- WARNING: Human impact 2.85 x Earth’s diminishing carrying capacity
- WARNING: RAPID DECLINE IN PROGRESS!
