Serious flooding hits Mulanje

Mulanje has experienced the heaviest rainfall for thirty years this week, with many areas flooded as  local rivers burst their banks.  Many people have lost their houses and the hospital has been struggling without electricity since the weekend.

Children have been admitted after their homes collapsed onto them, and many people are at risk of water borne diseases and diarrhoea over the next few days as water supplies have been contaminated. Please pray for our community and MMH staff as the area slowly recovers from this disaster.

It will be many days before our electricity supply is restored.  If you are able to make a small donation to help keep our generator running, meet the needs of our patients and assist with flood damage repairs, please send to
