The Malawi Defence Force and Malawi Police Service are continuing search and recovery operations, with assistance from international partners who are airlifting relief items to areas that are inaccessible by road. The national inter-agency assessment team is also supporting affected councils in assessing the total number of affected people and their needs, with the reports informing the finalisation of the response plan. The Scottish Government has also pledged 400,000 pounds support to the Cyclone Freddy recovery effort.
