“I didn’t expect the house would collapse like this,” said Chatayika, a subsistence farmer in Malawi, as he looked at the home where he lived with his wife and six children. After three days straight of rain from Cyclone Idai Chatayika discovered that the walls of the house were wet inside and outside and decided that his family needed to move out. The house collapsed once they had exited. The family is staying in a thatched hut till rainy season ends and they can rebuild. Photo by Rebecca Rempel

Alinafe in front of her home by Rebecca Rempel 4

Alinafe sits in front of her home in a village in Malawi. The house had a few cracks in it before Cyclone Idai hit and Alinafe knew that the home was not safe to live in. Just after she, her husband and daughter had moved out, the back wall collapsed. Though it was a scary experience Alinafe was excited that the house hadn’t fallen on her family when they were inside and that no one was injured. The family moved into another house which collapsed the following day while they were out. Alinafe’s husband, who is a carpenter, thatched a grass wall to temporarily replace the missing wall so the family could move back in. When rainy season is over they plan on rebuilding.
