Esther sits in the rubble where her house once stood in a village in Malawi. Esther, a widow, was alone in her home when it started collapsing under the strong rains of Cyclone Idai. One wall crumbled while she was still inside and the rest fell once she was out.
“I was very scared. That’s when my daughter came and rescued me,” said Esther who is now staying in her daughter’s house 50 feet away.
