Storms katika 2017
Storm huleta chini ya nyumba na rips paa off shule za mitaa:
Kulikuwa na dhoruba kubwa pamoja na pwani ya ziwa mwezi Novemba (2017) ambao uliharibu nyumba nyingi na ripped paa off darasa vitalu katika shule za mitaa.
The SENTAFrica mwakilishi katika 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 nyumba kabisa chini wakati karibu na 21 nyumba wamekuwa na paa yao peperushwa na upepo.”
Kama utafiti uharibifu unaosababishwa na dhoruba aweze tu faraja waathirika kwa maombi na faraja.
SENTAFrica inasaidia ukuaji wa kutegemeana na kujitegemea, encouraging people to find the solution to regular problems themselves. Hata hivyo, wakati msiba wale kali! walioathirika haja msaada wa ziada.
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 familia, shule hizi mbili na makanisa nane.
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.

Wengi wanaweza kusaidiwa kidogo lakini bado kuna mengi ya kufanyika. Kwa wengi haikuwa nyumba zao tu kwamba walikuwa kuharibiwa. 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.
Miti kutupwa chini kwa dhoruba Novemba
Nini SENTAfrica has been able to do is to show the community that it cares by offering a gift expressing our compassion. It would be wonderful to be able to do more.
