The Chewa Heritage Foundation (CHEFO) has donated relief items worth K5 million – courtesy of Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation – to newly constructed camps in flood-hit districts of Chikhwawa and Nsanje.
CHEFO chairman, Professor Kanyama Phiri, said the Chewa people were equally concerned with the devastation.
Kanyama disclosed the donation was made possible with funding from Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation, an American charity.
The donation will help flood survivors camping at Berewu (Chikhwawa) and Mgona (Nsanje).
Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation country director Dr. Moses Khombe said it was because of the trust that they have in CHEFO that made them donate the money.
Chewa Paramount Chief Lundu commended CHEFO for the donation, describing it as timely.
“The donation will go a long way in assisting the affected people living in the camps,” said Lundu.
The donated items included maize flour, blankets and plastic plates.
