The number of Rotarians performing charity work in Lilongwe has increased to 39 following the induction of three new members who joined the club recently. This is an indication that there will be more charity work.
On Saturday night, Bwaila Rotary Club inducted Phyroser Ishmael, Thokozani Juma and Richmond Chatose Chinula as its new members who will participate in some activities aimed at serving the marginalised communities in Lilongwe.
Bwaila Rotary Club president Vijay Mittal said his club is challenged with gender imbalance and low patronage,
He said the club will be working on bringing more people on board.
Mittal said: “We want to make a difference in the lives of communities and we want to inspire more people to do the same.”
In an interview with the press, Ishmael said she was inspired to join the club after observing that it is doing a lot in serving communities in various platforms.
She said: “My interest is to do charity work. I have been doing this with orphans at Njewa, but when I learned more about rotarianism, I decided to join the club. Now that I am a Rotarian, I believe I will reach out to many people with my work.”
Since it was established about a decade year ago, the club has been involved in various community works such as sanitation, health and education, among others.
The club bought equipment at Kamuzu Central Hospital and sponsored training for midwives.
