The United States, through USAID, is providing more than $7 million in humanitarian assistance that will support tens of thousands of people in Malawi facing food insecurity and other urgent humanitarian needs as a result of El Niño. Today’s announcement brings total U.S. humanitarian assistance to Malawi to over $59 million since the beginning of fiscal year 2023, including vital resilience and food security programs.
