In Malawi, longer and more severe droughts in recent years have dried up small streams and water holes.

Unfortunately, some areas are also affected by cyclones and flooding. When this happens, the simple mud houses are badly damaged. The water that falls is not suitable for drinking or farming but causes a huge amount of

destruction. Trócaire is working with local partners to help communities to rebuild after these events and to be better prepared for the future. Whatever you can contribute to the Trócaire box will help with this work. To learn more, go to:
