CADECOM and Trocaire distributing relief

CADECOM and Trocaire distributing relief items to survivors of cyclone Freddy.

The Social Development Arm of the Catholic Diocese of Zomba says it remains committed to addressing some of the challenges facing survivors of tropical cyclone Freddy in the camps that are within the territory of the Diocese. The Executive Director of the Department, Fr. Patrick Kamba, was speaking at Makina Cluster Camp in the area of Group Village Headman Magoli in Traditional Authority Mwambo where CADECOM-Zomba was distributing maize flour, cooking oil, soya piece, salt and blankets to cyclone survivors.

Fr. Kamba said people who were affected by cyclone Freddy are in a dire need of various forms of support because they lost a lot of life-sustaining property.

He therefore called upon all well-wishers to partner with CADECOM so that they can reach a cross-section of survivors from all the 21 registered camps in the areas of Group Village Headmen Magoli, Chaweza, Kathebwe, Mbalu and Makawa. At this juncture, the ED commended one of CADECOM’s development partners, Trocaire, for the financial support which enabled them to buy these relief items.

In a related development, Sisters of St. Teresa, also known as Missionaries of Charity, partnered Zomba Diocese CADECOM and distributed blankets to the elderly aged 65 years and above who were also affected by tropical cyclone Freddy in the area of Group Village Headman Chaweza
