Label: Purpose & Activities

Members of this group conduct sensitization meetings, form and train Disaster Committees, register beneficiaries and conduct impact assessments, distribute relief items and provision of spiritual and psychosocial support to affected people. They give humanitarian assistance to families, groups of people affected by natural disasters i.e. floods; disease outbreaks; drought; in Evacuation Camps and other places of Chikwawa and Nsanje districts. Their focus is also to reduce gender based violence in the Lower Shire because it is very rampant. Through these activities they expect to restore of hope and dignity to those displaced, relocated or injured by disasters. Through partnerships with other organizations, Lower Shire Interfaith Initiative has worked in District Teams to register and distribute relief items in the Evacuation Camps. This work is ongoing. They are working together so they can end up making a better Malawi for everybody, so that everyone can live peacefully and in harmony together. They are well aware of the environmental issues that led to the current devastation to the land and the community, and they are aware that these issues will need to be addressed before true stability can be restored. However, they are also aware of the more immediate needs of the community just to survive from day to day.
