Albaraka charity trust has put aside 200 million kwacha to assist flood victims in the country.
The revelation has been made in chikwawa when ACT cheered flood victims at Chikuse and jombo camps in TA Lundu.
ACT director of Administration and Finance Sayeed Witness said the ACT will reach out to the affected families with funding from United Arab Emirates Red Crescent and United Arab Aid.
Witness said “all the households will receive a k20 thousand pack containing 25kgs maize flour, 3 liters cooking oil, Water guard, 25 packets of soya pieces among other items”
Witness added that among the districts to benefit are Chikwawa, Zomba, Machinga, Phalombe, Balaka and Mangochi.
He said they decided to come in with the assistance as government alone cannot manage to reach out to all the affected families.
He bemoaned the tendency of some officials who are taking advantage of the disaster to enrich themselves.
So far ACT has reached out to 4700 affected families with funding from Petroda Malawi Limited, UAE Red Crescent and United Arab aid.
