Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) Nkhoma Synod on Friday donated 400 bags of maize wealth K3 million to the needy in the area of Traditional Authority Khongoni in Lilongwe.
Church authority said the Nkhoma Synod decided to donate maize to the hunger affected people in the area as one way of sharing Jesus Love.
Synod General Secretary Reverend Vasco Kachipapa said even Jesus Christ himself had a passion to feed the needy and there is nothing new in what the church is doing.
Reverend Kachipapa appealed for more food aid in the area.
“We will distribute this maize to everyone without discrimination based on church doctrine,” said Reverend Kachipapa.
The church with funding from Marion Medical Mission(MMM) is rolling out food aid distribution programme which amounts to K15 million.
The church through the same institution has already reached to 600 people with food Aid.
MMM has been operating in Malawi since 1990 and has so far been working in the area of water and sanitation.
Speaking during the function, Marion Medical Mission President Tom Loga his organisation will never leave people of Lilongwe alone.
Loga said the organisation will roll out to other districts once the resources allows to do so.
Group Village Headman Mikolo, has since thanked Nkhoma synod for the donation.
Mikolo said the maize will be used for the intended purpose and not for sale.
