Summary

The Warm Heart Malawi team living around Zomba is identifying needs and arranging relief, distributing funds directly. Most relief efforts are focused on the nearby city of Blantyre, but whole villages are stranded in the countryside. The first project is to save 776 people in Phalombe district encircled by floods at Makuwa primary school. $3 per person will bring boats to move them to a camp on higher ground where they can receive food, shelter, and medical care. Updates to follow.

Challenge

This is a disaster relief project to save peoples' lives who are stranded by floodwaters and have lost their homes. Our team on the ground is in contact with government officials and their network of farmers and trainers to identify villages and locations where people are stranded and there is no relief headed to them.

Solution

Our team can use the funds to rent boats and trucks to move people to shelters. Then buy food and medical supplies, collect clothing and donations, and deliver where there is the most need.

Long-Term Impact

This is a short-term project to save lives. Longer term, this is a project to train people about how Biochar can help cool the planet and reduce global warming. The many uses of Biochar make it a valuable tool that can help improve lives everywhere. Malawi is just one location that is in the process of adapting Biochar into its sustainable farming practices. Biochar provides quick improvement to local lives. The wider it spreads the higher impact it will have on the environment as a whole.
