storme i 2017

Storm bringer ned huse og river taget af en lokal skole:

Der var enorme storme langs søbredden til november (2017) der hærgede mange hjem og rippet tag off blokke klasseværelset på den lokale skole.

Den SENTAFrica repræsentant i Malawi, Yunus Banda, was invited to the school to see the damage for himself. The storm damage was not restricted to the school. He writes:

There was a heavy storm last evening that has blown off tin roofs at Thugulu School. Two school blocks affected. And in the community. Close to 11 huse helt ned, mens tæt på 21 huse har haft deres tag blæst væk af vinden.”

Da han undersøgte de skader, som uvejret kunne han kun trøste ofrene med bøn og opmuntring.

SENTAFrica understøtter væksten af ​​gensidig afhængighed og selvstændighed, encouraging people to find the solution to regular problems themselves. Men, når katastrofen rammer dem hårdest ramte behov ekstra støtte.

SENTAfrica respons

SENTAfrica immediately sent a gift to enable Livingway Education respond to the crisis. The LWE Director Yunusu Banda gathered a team including a senior chief and village head-men. The meeting decided on a course of action that would lead to assistance being given to 116 familier, to skoler og otte kirker.

On December 1st a gathering of local representatives met on the LWE site to distribute support packages. Speeches were made by schools and church representatives, a representative of the beneficiary group and a local government official. Two senior chiefs were able to preside over the proceedings.

Resumé:

Mange kunne hjælpes lidt, men der er stadig meget, der skal gøres. For mange var det ikke blot deres huse, der blev beskadiget. The storm damaged the crops in many people’s fields, tearing down trees and causing additional hardship. It will take many hours of hard work to repair the damage and replant the crops necessary for the survival of the community.
