Over the past couple of days our Disaster Assessment Response Team (DART) has been closely monitoring the situation in Malawi and putting all the necessary steps in place to start our assessment. Reports coming in are saying that 638,000 people have been affected and 121,000 displaced by torrential rain and flooding in Malawi.
