Several communities in Malawi are still counting losses, three months after floods ravaged different parts of the country destroying people’s property and forcing them to seek for refuge in Displaced People’s Camps (IDPs).
The flash floods were a result of heavy and intense rains. They left close to 180,000 people displaced.
Although the situation is slowly returning to normal in some of the affected communities, quite a lot of affected people still live in camps
One of the major challenges that cropped up following the floods was lack of safe water after flood waters mixed with sewerage.
George Mhango has just been in Bangula camp in Nsanje district on the boundary between Malawi and Mozambique in the southern region of Malawi. And as his pictures below indicate, things seem to be getting to normal in the camps as seen by the affected people drawing and drinking safe water from taps.
