Solidarity with Kachipanda Village, Malawi

Kachipanda village in the district of Dedza, Malawi which was badly hit by Cyclone Idai on the 14th of March. Thousands are struggling to meet their basic needs because of food shortages and a lack of access to clean water which is causing major risks to people's health. We will be showing solidarity for Kachipanda by raising funds at this event to support a permaculture initiative in the village to create a sustainable food resource. More info here.

This project is part of the London Borough of Culture. See more info here.
