Covid19: the new challenge

Dear donor,

The arrival of covid19 in Malawi has fuelled concern about the already dramatic situation (food insecurity, malaria, HIV/AIDS, typhoid, cholera). But it is precisely the lack of water and the precariousness of sanitation and hygiene facilities that make the risk of contagion alarming. If the virus is not contained, the country will face another tragic pandemic and the poorest villages and vulnerable people will still suffer the worst consequences.


To avoid the worst, the government has issued severe restrictions, closing schools, activities and banning travel and gatherings, including markets. This lockdown is only worsening the poverty and hunger emergency for many families.


For our children attending kindergartens and schools run by our local partner (the St. John's Development Centre), going to school is the only way to have a nutritious meal guaranteed; many parents cannot provide enough food for their children and, with the school closed, many children risk falling into the malnutrition/nutrition trap.

We've come up with a temporary solution which is the installation of hand-washing devices.

Thank you for your help, more important than ever !
