In January this year Rumphi boma was hit by floods along the Mawerewere river and many inhabitants had been affected. Through the ELMA FOUNDATION LICO was able to support over 100 households and 200 children with a package of relief items which included a bag of maize flour, cooking oil, blanket, mosquito net, laundry and bathing soap, kitchen salt and second hand cloths for children in April. The second phase of the distribution went on well in May. LICO further thanks Rumphi District Council through Disaster Risk Management and Social Welfare departments for the good working relationship leading to a successful distribution of relief items.
Within the Relief Aid Project 60 particularly vulnerable children from 6 schools could also be supported with new school uniforms in May. For the pupils in the rural area around Mzokoto in the Rumphi District LICO got support for 55 school uniforms from the EGMONT TRUST. Which had been delivered to 11 schools on Wednesday this week.
