The Scottish Government has provided funding of £175,000 to support emergency flood relief in Malawi.

Severe flooding in the south of Malawi over recent days has affected nearly one million people, resulting in loss of life and many tens of thousands of people being displaced.

The money will be used to deliver critical work to secure water supplies and treat contamination in the immediate aftermath of the disaster.
