Washington Area Malawi Flood Relief Effort

 
  
Malawi has faced weeks of heavy rain which has resulted in devastating floods. Tens of thousands of families have been displaced and at least 200 people are dead or missing. Many people remain unaccounted for in areas that have yet to be accessible by road, the government and aid organizations have furnished temporary shelters, but a lot of assistance is required in returning some normalcy to the affected families.
