Bishop Mackenzie International Schools (BMIS) on Friday donated various relief items to thunderstorms victims at Kauma and Tsoka Nkanasi villages in the area of traditional authority Chitukula in Lilongwe.
Heavy rains and thunderstorms hit the area on January 2, 2015, leaving 5,000 people homeless.
BMIS head teacher Janette Johnson said her school was “very concerned “when they learnt about the devastation.
“We asked our students for donations and their parents gave us the required money. Let us take this opportunity to thank parents of these students for the gesture,” said Johnson.
Member of Parliament for the area David Bisnowaty commended BMIS for the donations saying the assistance will go a long way in assisting the orphans and the vulnerable.
Bisnowaty said people in the area are suffering following the devastation.
“You are a friend indeed and let me ask other organizations to emulate what you have done,” said Bisnowaty.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
