Floods have already become an annual event for many people in Malawi. However, the extent of this year’s flooding has reached new heights.

In January, the ministry forecast the threat of Cyclone ANA for the southern region of the country. On January 23-25, 2022, heavy rains occurred in the districts of the southern region, causing flooding.

Chikwawa district was not spared from the devastating effects of cyclone ANA. The district experienced flooding of the major rivers Shire, Mwanza, Thangadzi, Likhubula, Mkombedzi and other smaller rivers in the district.

All 12 traditional authorities in the district were not spared from the effects of Cyclone Ana. These are Makhuwira, STA Chiputula, Mlilima, Katunga, Kasisi, Chapananga, Lundu, Ngabu Ngowe, Masache and Ndakwera. There you can see the horrible sight of destroyed houses, hectares of farmland whose entire crops have been washed away. The residents are in urgent need of basic equipment for the various evacuation centers.

As of January 27, 2022, a total of 84,106 households were affected in all of the above areas (the figure includes households in the camps and outside the camps). Some of the extent of the devastation was captured in a video by our Country Director January Watchmen Mvula here.
