One of volunteers for the organization, Ahmed Bakali said this part of about K300million which the organization has so far sourced to help in bailing out the flood victims from the most pressing problems they are facing due to floods.

The floods, the worst to hit the southern African country in 15-years, have killed about 200 people with 600,000 others affected.

“Besides being a group concerned people who also live in Malawi, as Muslims we also have a duty to help humanity. We won’t look whether one is a Muslim or whether he is a Christian and whether one doesn’t believe in any religion at all. So we are here to help anybody affected by the floods,” said Bakali.

The relief pack consists of 10kg maize flour, 1 roll of black sheeting, 2kg maize seed, 25 water guard water purification sachets, 1 blanket, kitchen utensils consisting of 7 plates, 7 mugs, 7 spoons, 7 ndiwo (relish) plates,  book,  2 packets of soya pieces,  1 mosquito net,  1 plastic Bucket, 1 plastic basin and MK, 2,000 in cash.

The whole relief package to an individual family cost about MK20, 000.

Bakali said the organization, whose motto is ‘brother in need is a brother indeed’,  had also provided similar relief aid to the floods victims in the southern districts of Mangochi,  Nsanje Phalombe and Blantyre urban areas.

He said plans are underway to reach out to more floods victims in these areas who were previously not targeted.
