By Liisa Tuhkanen LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Two weeks after floods first swept across southern Africa, tens of thousands of people urgently need clean water, food, shelter and medical care, aid agencies said on Friday, as more rain was forecast for worst-affected Malawi. Torrential rain triggered floods in early January, affecting some 900,000 people across Malawi, Mozambique, Madagascar and Zimbabwe, with almost 250,000 people 7forced to leave their homes, the United Nations said this week. In Malawi, one of the world’s poorest countries with a population of 16 million, 62 people have been confirmed dead and 153 registered as missing. In neighboring Mozambique, 86 people had lost their lives, the United Nations reported on Friday.
