When devastation happens in Africa, it never gets the same media coverage as the west. But as African it is our responsibility to create awareness and do what we can to get the word around and help.
Cyclone Idai has devastated the Southern Hemisphere of Africa, and is one of the worst tropical cyclones on record to affect Africa. With hundreds of people still missing, the unfortunate death toll has reached 1,000.
According to Aljazeera, aid workers are desperately trying to get emergency supplies to tens of thousands of people who have been affected ny Cyclone Idai.
Extremely heavy rains in lower Shire River districts of Chikwawa and Nsanje, in Malawi’s far south, has been compounded by further rains from last week’s Cyclone Idai.
The rain has caused severe flooding in 14 of Nsanje’s 28 districts. Official figures confirm over 50 deaths, and hundreds are injured. Rivers have broken their banks leaving many houses fully submerged, with 11,000 families in Nsanje have been displaced.
