Kabumbu community feeds flood victims through project

On March 17, 2011 heavy rains caused the Lifidzi River to overflow, leading to the displacement of about 136 households (of which 96 are female headed) to the evacuation centre at Naliomba Primary School in Salima District, Central Malawi. The floods destroyed seven homesteads and affected 182 gardens (450 ha), planted mainly with maize and rice.
