The earth is heating up, resulting in climate change. This is also affecting Malawi. Every year Phulanya has to deal with floods or extreme drought. One Hope Malawi is committed to combating the effects of climate change and preparing the population for the floods and drought.

Current situation in Phulanya
Floods and drought, caused by the climate change, result in failed harvests, collapsed houses and the spread of illnesses. Deforestation is one of the threatening factors.

  • Floods in Phulanya twice a year
  • a lot of damage to houses and crops by Cyclone Freddy in 2023

Our program
We focus on the establishment of climate resistant communities, by:

  • Offering relief help to improve resilience of the local community during (natural) disasters;
  • Creating understanding and awareness about important climate processes;
  • Strengthen the adaptability to climate changes, by:
    • Reforestation
      • by planting 1000 new trees in 2024 at five different schools;
      • by caring for the newly planted trees (6000+ trees from 2021 to 2023).
    • Road works tocombat flooding by constructing bridges and waterways & passages.
