Summer 2013 Update
including
April - June trip
In January, the longed-for annual rains turned torrential and severe flooding devastated vast areas in the lower lands, collapsing houses, destroying crops and killing livestock.  Hundreds of hectares were under water, and many of the most vulnerable lost all the maize they’d planted for this year, so hunger started early............
However OHP (Aid Africa/Open Hand Projects) was able to help many of the flood victims. A special appeal allowed us to send over extra resources so we provided water treatments, maize, skin and laundry soap to hundreds of distressed people, in addition to our Food Programme - the annual maize distribution (with soap and soya textured food) issued during the hunger period.

Sept-Nov trip
Malawi, during our Sept-Nov trip, was hot—sometimes over 100 deg in the shade and as the rains approached, increasingly humid and uncomfortable. Electricity supply was frustratingly unreliable, endangering our vital goats’ milk and vet
drugs as our refrigeration failed – how we need to increase our solar strength!  

However, it was another good—if tough—trip, lots of positive progress and encouragement despite the inevitable difficulties and disappointments of this heavily impoverished area.  
The work is flourishing, but also the responsibilities and pressures…..
