United Kingdom's (UK) Department for International Development (DfID) has given Malawi £24 million (about K23 billion) as a contribution to the government's National Disaster Response Plan, the British High Commission in Lilongwe has said . A statement made available to Nyasa Times says the UK Development Minister Nick Hurd , confirmed the support on Wednesday during a telephone conversation with President Peter Mutharika. The support from the UK will assist some of the 6.5 million people identified by the Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee (MVAC) food security assessment as requiring emergency food/cash assistance over the next nine months.

"To get to know a new culture", "grow beyond me", "get socially involved" are some of the reasons young Germans opt for volunteer service abroad every year. Through 'Weltwärts', a programme of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, close to 3 500 young people are sent to emerging and developing countries each year for a period of 12 months to support social projects. Since 2013, the ASC Göttingen von 1846 e.V., a sports club in Germany, has been arranging volunteer positions in Namibia. The network is so large that currently 15 volunteers are in the country in Windhoek, Rehoboth, Eenhana, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. The next group of volunteers arrives next month.
