This is a story of recovery


Six months ago, the community of Mwalija in Malawi was disrupted by what is believed to be the worst disaster in the southern hemisphere.

Cyclone Idai wrecked homes and devastated livelihoods. It pushed the whole community of Mwalija out of their homes, in search for higher, safer ground.

Having lost everything after Cyclone Idai, Stephano and Mary were determined to rebuild their livelihoods, together with the rest of the community.

The powerful short film Kunyumba tells the story of Stephano and Mary. You can see it in the visitor centre or on the ShelterBox website.

See the film and find out more about our response.
