As you might have heard, heavy rains and flooding in Malawi and Mozambique have caused deaths, destruction of homes and the displacement of thousands of people. In and around the Passion Center for Children in Zomba, Malawi, Abusa Pilira and his staff are assessing the situation and damage caused to our Passion kids, their villages and our surrounding communities.
Right now we have children sleeping in the open because their homes are severely damaged. At least four houses (that we know of right now) from our Passion Center extended family have been destroyed and many houses need plastic sheeting and more grass for roofs to prevent further damage from rain, as well as doors and windows to keep the rain out. Also, treated drinking water is a major need as the government is concerned with a cholera outbreak due to poor sanitation and water source contamination. There are still households we can’t get to because roads and paths are blocked, which leaves people in our area who need clean cooking/eating utensils.
We are asking for donations that will allow the Passion Center team to respond to these needs. Some emergency funds have come in so the team is starting to respond already. If you can give, please click here and designate your donation “Greatest Need.” Please pray for the children, their communities and the Passion Center team during this challenging time.
"Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer." Romans 12:12
