100,000 Euros earmarked for flood regions in Zambia, Malawi, and Zimbabwe

Lusaka. As reported, the regions around the Zambezi and other large rivers of Eastern Africa have been devastated by floods for weeks. District Apostle Charles Ndandula from Lusaka (Zambia) has asked Chief Apostle Wilhelm Leber for assistance. In the meantime, the Church leader has initiated emergency relief measures, and has requested “NAK-karitativ” to take up direct contact with the Church office in Lusaka.

The first priority will be to provide foodstuffs, household goods, blankets, and materials to aid in the reconstruction of destroyed homes. Once the flooded land surfaces are again exposed, the most important commodity that will likely be needed is seed for planting. Many fields had been flooded by the heavy rainfall just after they had been planted, which has led to fears of acute famine. “NAK-karitativ” has earmarked 100,000 Euros in immediate emergency aid from its disaster relief fund.
