Barnabas Aid has responded swiftly to the urgent needs of Christians affected by the cyclone that devastated Malawi earlier this month by sending 350,000 servings of ePap.
Thanks to your generous response to our appeal on March 17, more than 16 tons of nourishing ePap – a maize-based porridge similar to oatmeal – is already on its way Malawian Christians who are desperately short of food.

In partnership with African Enterprise, the ePap is being taken by road from South Africa and will arrive soon in Malawi.
Cyclone Freddy – which battered Malawi, Madagascar, and Mozambique – caused more than six months of rain to fall in just six days in mid-March.
This resulted in widespread flooding and mudslides that left an estimated 40,000 homes damaged or destroyed. More than 400 people in Malawi are known to have been killed in the disaster.
Christian-majority Malawi is often the last to receive aid in time of need owing to its landlocked position.
