Abstract : This paper examines the cyclone-prone region of Malawi and the impacts of Cyclone Freddy, a particularly devastating storm. It looks at how hope and resilience messages, as well as materials, are given to victims and how these can help them cope with the aftermath of the storm. The paper also looks at theories of resilience and the implications of these theories for the victims of natural disasters. Finally, the paper offers recommendations for how the government and other organizations can better prepare for and respond to future natural disasters. One key element of successful resilience messages is to focus on positive outcomes and emphasize the strength of the community.
