Round Table donates maize seeds to flood victims

 

Round Table Malawi on Saturday distributed maize seeds to flood victims in three camps in Chikwawa and Nsanje as part of their recovery plan.

The donation comes at a time many victims are going back to their homes but without starter packs to get back to their normal lives.

Speaking at Nyachilenda Camp in Nsanje South on Saturday, Round Table Malawi president Jonas Sani said the organisation distributed seeds to help people recover from the tragedy.

“We would like to see people grow maize again. We sympathise with them for the tragedy. It is our wish that they will recover as soon as possible,” he said.

In his remarks, Lengwe Ward former councillor Mwaiwawo Dowe commended the group for the donation, saying it came at a time people in Chikwawa wanted seeds for cultivation.

“With the seeds, people will be able to get food in three months’ time,” he said.
