Neno fire victims rescued

ActionAid on Tuesday donated relief items to 52 households in Kain­girira Village, Traditional Authority ( T/A) Dambe in Neno affected by a fire which burnt down 104 houses a few weeks ago.

ActionAid programme coordinator Landani Masingati said they do­nated the items because Neno is part of their catchment area.

He said the fire also affected their work be­cause some of the people they were working with were now destitute.

Said Masingati: “We had to show our soli­darity because we have been working with them since 2007 as such their suffering is also our suf­fering.”

He said as Actionaid, they could not replace everything the families lost, but just provide them with items to re­construct their houses.

Responding to the ges­ture, village head (VH) Kaingirira commended ActionAid for supporting her people.

She said: “I can now smile because my sub­jects have been assisted.”

Kaingirira also urged her people to stop start­ing bush fires which are suspected to have caused the accident.

The items included blankets, buckets, plates, cups and plastic sheets for roofing. n
