Madam Mutharika said however that more assistance is required as the impact of the disaster is so huge.

She spoke on Sunday, when she received a  tonne of condensed milk from Double Disi General dealers company to be distributed to young children living in camps in flood affected areas across the country.

The First Lady hailed the company for responding to President Peter Mutharika’s call that every citizen must contribute something to assist fellow citizens hit by the disaster.

“We are grateful as Beatify Malawi that Double Disi General Dealers has so much confidence in us to donate these items to the people affected by floods through our organisation.

“Most Importantly we are happy that despite being small they saw it necessary to join hands with everyone else helping out in this cause of alleviating the suffering of fellow citizens affected by this tragedy,” said Madam Mutharika.

She appealed to more individuals, companies and organisations big or small to emulate what Dounble Disi General dealers as well as many organisations are doing towards the national response to the flood situation.

Torius Double, owner of the company said as a business they have been moved by the extent of the damage the floods have caused and the suffering of the people affected especially children.

“What has happened is unspeakable, but what we do as citizens to help the fellow citizens to restart their lives is what is important. The government is doing all it can and President Peter Mutharika’s declaration of the national disaster is a call to us citizens and the world over to do something towards this tragedy.

“We are hopeful that this little something we have given will help to sustain the nutrition status of the children living in the camps,” explained Mrs Double .

Up to a third of the country has been affected by the floods, affecting over 200,000 people.

    Getrude is indeed moving away from her job description.You should have driven along Victoria Avenue from NBM Vic Avenue thru to Standand Bank Bt Branch today,to meet that rotten stenchy smell.Do we really have the Beam,Councillors and Mayors in Malawi?Zamanyazi.

  2. chakazulu says:

    komatu ndi mbava izi why not donate straight to the victims as AMRA has done? Akapeleka kwa masapota a DPP zimenezo or either you would have donated through Red cross malawi, World Vision, gift of the givers and other reliable bodies other than this one which doesnt have a cause of relief assistance at all. Other intending well wishers please donate through mabugwe okhulupilika not the Beams or the mulakhos sindale izi mwina a donor wa ndi a DPP

  3. Max Nsani says:

    sometimes you wonder what the point of having all those advisers is. The most appropriate speech for the first lady, relevant to her beautify Malawi organisation woud have been advice on how to properly dispose of those tins; to educate people why having all those trees planted does not only beautify Malawi, but also mitigate the effects of floods on the properties of the people. it would have been an opportunity to educate people that while the water could still have devastated property etc, the trees would have lessened the impact of the floods. But instead, the speech is about how people have heeded the calls by her husband blah blah blah!
    Shallow!

  4. Beam has nothing to do with Disaster aid,its all about showing off that its an important organisation yet its not.As the first lady is posing to be pictured time is wasted for those children to receive the milk bcz they are hungry,No brains.You cant pose for a picture yet ppl are hungry waiting for the donation.There are ppl who donated items in bulk but were not taken seriouslly,why this one tone news apreading at lightening speed???It simply shows no respect to ppl.Thats why you put on suits when visting flood victims forgetting that they are the ones buying you those clothes bcz they pay tax.Mulungu.akulangani muona!

  5. johni says:

    I always laugh at some of the justification from BEAM when it comes to linking their organisation to some of these duties like relief distribution. It appears those crafting the terms and refs for this org had a narrow focus and now, through the back door, want to expand their area of focus. You make the first lady look like a cartoon justifying BEAM’s involvement. Dr Magalasi and Mr Bamusi, zinakhala bwanji pamenepa?

  6. Abdur Rahman says:

    You can also visit this website
    http://www.hafsainvestment.netai.net
    They show the same condensed milk on their website
    Which means double disi is a fraud!

  7. Abdur Rahman says:

    the condensed milk has not been donated by double disi it has been donated by Hafsa investment Mr Razzaq
    If you want proof you can purchase the condensed milk and see the tag

  8. LUTEPO says:

    LET ME AGREE WITH WBA,I DONT NO WAT KIND OF PPO ARE THSE AND IF AT ALL THEY CARE ABOUT PPO THEY ARE COMMUNICATION TO,LOOK AT THE WHOLE FIRST LADY HELPING TO LIE THAT THE CALL WAS LOADED TO THE TOP WHEN IT WAS NOT AND YOU CANT EVEN ANDERSTAND WHY THEY DD THIS,THE CARTONS WERE REALY REMOVED FROM THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PICK UP TO THE TOP OF THE LEFT SIDE TO INCREASE HEIGHT AND THE FIRST LADY SAID YA THIS IS BEAUTIFUL WORTHY SMILING AT,THE VEHICLE IS REALLY EMPTY IN THE RIGHT SIDE AND THE PERSON WHO WAS TAKING THE PHOTOS IS MORE THAN A FULL,THAT IS ANOTHER REASON WHY WE CAN ONLY SEE THE LEFT SIDE OF THIS INNOCENT HILUX.AND WHY IS THE DONATION GOING THROUGH THIS SOSOSOSO TRUST????????

  9. phodogoma says:

    Please mama first lady don’t NACgated the aid.

  10. yuona says:

    You are wasting time kumakapereka zinthu ku State House pamene anthu akufuna very urgent assistance in Lower Shire. Are you really helping or just seeking fame? Kodi simunalapebe?

  11. dadaboma says:

    Kufuna kupusitsa anthu kuti ziti BEAM ikuthandiza. Why did this donor choose to route its donations through BEAM and not through the govt Dept of Disaster & Relief for onward distribution to the affected ppl? And BEAM says “as govt we’re happy that you’ve headed the president’s call for help”. Is BEAM govt institution? And this small donation worth of news? Why did BEAM not acknowledge the help rendered by the JBF if BEAM has been appointed to be acknowledging relief aid? This madness must stop. You cannot play politics on peoples calamity? We understand a certain mwenye has given this little aid to BEAM through a dubious company owned by relatives of APM working at State House. Disaster is not a playground for stinky politics. Stop this. And this so-called first lady is a shame to look at.

    looking from the tail gate of car on the third picture,it looks like there is an empty space or whole meaning that goods were just packed on edge of the body.all the same it will go along way even if you had presented the items the way they are.

    trials and tribulations in this time of revelation

  14. Tiyanjane says:

    We thank Double Disi for the Condensed milk to be given to children. But what do our nutritionists at the ministry of health and the national nutrition commiittee say about targetting young children with this highly sugared ‘milk’? Perhaps we should suggest that nutritionist go down to the sites with cooking demonstrations on how best to use the milk in combination with other foods for best nutritional results. In fact, it is important that regular cooking demonstrations and nutrition education sessions become part of the relief activities.

  15. Zanga Phee! says:

    Beauty Malawi,oh okay does this entity have no structures? this sounds to be too personal,i don’t think this is real if it’s not flattering in stuff,Why not the pick up delivered to the beneficiaries then picture them while they are smiling,i don’t think this kids close here are the victim but why they don’t have a touch of feeling this is wrong men!,My poor Malawi yo,See my name.

  16. vicky says:

    If you understood the article ,it says Double Dis donated a tonne,which is a 1000kgs of milk. So dont expect the car which is almost 1.5 tonne to be filled everywhere.

    1. Bolero says:

      You are right, but the vehicle has also shifted locations. Anything could have happened between the two locations.

  19. Mchere Madeya says:

    Actually the name is Dabble Disi, he is a security officer at State House, his sister Thenjiwe Disi Mitawa was the personal nurse to former president Bingu, Dabble was his bodyguard and both are related to former first lady Ethel Mutharika. What goes around comes around.

  20. wba says:

    Luk very close at the back of the vehicle pic # 3 its empty…..they hv taken the cartons from the other side and put it to the front ….look very close
