Thyolo District Council has called on stakeholders and people of good will to provide urgent support to households that have been affected by Cyclone Freddy in the district.

Thyolo District Commissioner, Rosemary Nawasha, told Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Wednesday when she was distributing 1,050 blankets, beans and water jugs to the affected households.

Nawasha said Cyclone Freddy has destroyed houses of over 754 households and killed eight people in the district.

She added that the incessant downpour which started on Friday has also destroyed Suwazi Bridge which connects people from Thyolo Boma to Makwasa and Thekelani among many road infrastructures, a development that has made the roads impassable.

Esther Keyasoni, a mother of seven children, from Kaope Village in the area of Senior Chief Nchilamwera lamented that her house has been washed away by the heavy rains and said she was grateful for the support of assorted items she received.

Meanwhile, nine camps have been established in Thyolo however, areas that have been heavily affected are inaccessible due to road damages, making relief efforts difficult.
