Heavy rains affected Malawi causing rivers to overflow, resulting in death and hundreds of thousands displaced. With insufficient resources to deal with the situation, Gift of Givers sought to aid thousands in the Chiradzulu, Thyolo and other districts. The Colours of Hope Gaza-Malawi Campaign ran from March to July 2015. Food items for Malawi were transported by Gift of the Givers (GOTG) to their warehouses for distribution in Malawi. Hundreds of Gazans were forced to leave their homes due to flooding. Due to the insufficient electricity and gas resources, many families resorted to lighting fires and candles to keep warm and for light, causing major fires. Sawaed, partner to Gift of the Givers, responsible for the development of the six floor Woman and Child Care Centre explained the urgency for aid in Gaza. Blankets, warm clothing, food, heating apparatus and building material was the priority for Gaza. Colours of Hope collected funds for this purpose.
