Funding Delays Affect Malawi Red Cross Society's Construction of Model Houses

By Martin Chiwanda

Nsanje — Malawi Red Cross Society has admitted they are yet to complete construction works of some model houses which they showcased in August, 2015 in Chikwawa district meant for the people who were relocated to safer places during the January 2015 floods.

The organisation's Communications Manager, Felix Washon said since November 2015, they have not been receiving funds from the donor who made the commitment to support the construction of such model houses.

"When we were at recovery stage, with our donor International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, we agreed to construct model houses which are resilient to flooding. The donor made an appeal to international community for their support and countries made pledges.
