As the waters recede and confine themselves once again to their natural home, the 336,000 people displaced in the southern region of Malawi face a challenging future. Severe rains hit Malawi early January covering most of the southern region and destroying the livelihood of 116,000 households. People fled their homes in an attempt to escape the floods. Many grabbed belongings and any food they could find, packed it into canoes, and started the long journey to safer ground. Those displaced are in for a six to eight month stay in displacement camps waiting for the unknown. With memories of severe flooding, panic, and fear, the call to just sit and wait is a tough one.
