Malawi Floods Displace More People Than Originally Thought; UNICEF Warns Over Disease, Malnutrition Risks

The Guardian: Malawi floods devastation far worse than first thought
“Nearly a quarter of a million people, more than originally thought, have been affected by the devastating floods that ripped through Malawi a month ago, and with rains still falling, many of the 230,000 who were forced to flee their homes have been unable to return and rebuild their lives, the U.N. said. … [UNICEF] is concerned about possible outbreaks of cholera, dysentery, and malaria as well as the risk of malnutrition…” (Chonghaile, 2/10).
