"Malawi  experienced a number of weather related hazards during the 2014-2015 agricultural production season. The late onset of the rain season delayed planting of all major crops across the country so much so that by the time of the cessation of the rains, most crops had not yet reached maturity. Heavy rains and flooding in the month of January 2015, resulted in the loss of lives and damage to the infrastructure; the floods also severely destroyed field crops, caused wash-away of soil nutrients and affected farming activities such as planting, weeding, and ridging as well as fertilizer application."

"With these new numbers, and while prioritising additional severely affected districts, we need to take stock of our response to ensure all children and families have access to emergency services and supplies,” said Mahimbo Mdoe, Unicef’s representative in Malawi.

“We are carefully monitoring how displaced children are faring, as we know, after one month in crowded camps, disease outbreaks and increased malnutrition can occur,” he said.
