Round Table Malawi Blantyre Number 20, a non-profit organisation, has reached out to flood victims who are camping at Nkhwangwa Primary School in Traditional Authority (T/A) Ngabu in Chikwawa.
On Saturday, the organisation donated K1.6 million worth of items including, 50 bags of 50 kilogramme-bags of flour, 200 blankets, soya pieces, Likuni phala for babies and buckets to 230 households.
In an interview, Round Table vice-president Jean Claude De Silva said the organisation was touched by the destruction the floods caused to communities.
“As an organisation that offers relief to communities, we gave out these items to lessen the people’s suffering,” he said.
Former Chikwawa South legislator Ellias Abdul Karim was grateful for the donation.
“We informed them when the disaster struck and they have responded. People are suffering here without food, blankets and other things,” he said.
Group village head Machilika, whose entire village was affected, thanked Round Table for the donation saying they had no food and blankets.
Mary Limited, 33, from Lyson Village, T/A Ngabu, was all smiles for the maize flour, blanket and Likuni phala she received.
“This is the first donation we are receiving at this camp. We are very grateful.”
There are more than six camps in Chikwawa South with more than 5 000 people. n
