Flames donate money to ailing former keeper Trust Lunda

Malawi national football team, the Flames, donated K38,000 to former Big Bullets and international custodian Trust Lunda, who recently underwent surgery at Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe where he had his toe amputated.

Lunda given support

Lunda given support

Lunda, who was discharged and now is back in Dwangwa left Bullets for South Africa in 2011, before coming back home this year.

Flames team manager Clement Kafwafwa confirmed the news with Nyasa Times before the team’s departure for Ethiopia, where they will take part in the Cecafa Cup.

Kafwafwa said they thought it wise to render support to a fellow colleague, who once played for the Flames.

He also said Lunda contributed a lot to the success of the Flames in his time, therefore, they decided to offer a little help they could afford

“We thought it wise to help our friend with a little something after the technical panel led by Technical Director John Kaputa and players. We could have loved to go as a team to give him the money on our own but since the team is leaving around 3 for Ethiopia we have given the money to Blue Eagles team manager to handle over the money on our behalf,” said Kafwafwa.

The former Flames towering defender also urged companies to come to Lunda’s rescue as he needs support at this critical time.

Since he came from the rainbow nation, Lunda has been in the hospital for three weeks, and Bullets officials and players also spared some time to visit him when the team was in Lilongwe to play Epac FC.

The Peoples Team bought him several groceries and they also gave him money.

In his remarks on a telephone interview, Lunda said he was happy that his colleagues for the Flames remembered him.

“ I didn’t expect them to remember me because it has been long since I played for the Flames . I hope that they will do the same for other former players,” he said.

Many soccer lovers in this country remember Lunda for his reflex skills.

  42. God First says:

    May God remember our brother, Trust during this time of pain. I wish him quick recovery. Let me thank the Flames for the timely donation as i disagree with Hkmdidi who feels that it is too small. If he can manage more than this let him do likewise and if there are others out there who can do what Flames have done please go ahead to donate whatever you have regardless of amount. remember you give out what you have.

  43. Shuz says:

    Are you guys serious ? Mk 38000
    Not even R1000 ….ooo! God .
    Get well soon brother……!

  44. Causemore says:

    It is unfortunate that the whole Team donated such an amount to someone who contributed to the development of football at national level. I would rather ask FAM officials who spends a lot of money in campaigning for various positions now to do something to this young man . It is hard to believe that People like Suzgo Nyirenda and Walter Nyamilandu fail to come up with policies that will cover our national team players .
