1. Background

2. Context Overview
Tropical Cyclone Freddy first made landfall in Malawi in late February and returned to sweep the country for a second time this week, causing additional torrential rains, flooding, and mudslides. The government has announced a state of disaster in the country’s worst-hit southern region. Malawi is struggling against a deadly outbreak of cholera that has been ongoing since March 2022. The situation has now become a double emergency. With more than 36,000 cases and 1,200 deaths to date, flooding raises the risk of cholera significantly by contaminating the water sources on which many vulnerable populations
rely. The risks are further compounded among those living in crowded temporary shelters without adequate hygiene and sanitation facilities.
