One of the country’s youthful musicians, Gwamba has called on Malawians to develop a spirit of sharing with those in need as a way of making other people’s lives who are finding life difficult easier.
Gwamba who on Saturday donated K500, 000 to PASHELLO Charitable Trust belonging to a wife of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Member of Parliament for Chikwawa Nkombezi Constituency, Lloyd Malola said it doesn’t need someone to have billions or millions to help others.
The musician whose real name is Dunken Zyambo who recently moved from secular music to gospel made the donation at the event which took place at Malola’s residence.
According to Gwamba, his donation was meant to uplift other peoples’ lives who were in need.
“I am just sharing the little I have to people who might need it. I have made a donation of K500, 000 here at PASHELLO Charitable Trust and my plan is to help people as much as I can not only here in Chikwawa but the whole Malawi,” said Gwamba.
He added that it was his wish to assist people with various things be it food, buildings but he was quick to say the issue of making donations to those in need was everyone’s responsibility.
He said that his turn to gospel music was a present to God for the good things he does to his life.
“Each and everyone have to share the little things they have in order to make sure that lives of people change for the better. I don’t know what comes up in my future but I always pray that God should give me long life that I keep helping those in need,” he concluded.
On her part, Felia Malola who is the Executive Director of PASHELLO Charitable Trust said was timely as she did not expect it in the time they worked without any funds.
She added that it was pleasing to hear that Gwamba was making head way to make such huge donation to the trust.
Said Malola: “It’s our aim to develop this place to the extent where the young generation would find it a good place to learn and acquire quality education. It’s a big donation made by Gwamba today and we really appreciate him for that.”
“At PASHELLO Charitable Trust we do a lot of things ranging from supporting over 35 orphans, over 100 elderly, over 80 widows, over 50 people living with HIV/AIDS as well as over 50 physically challenged people whom we support with wheel chairs,” she stated.
Malola further called on other well wishers to support her charitable trust where she said it was their dream to grow big and reach out to as many vulnerable people as possible.
She said the money donated by Gwamba would be used to develop the land and construction works where they intend to build Community Based Care Centre (CBCC), Orphanage centre as well as an office for a smooth operation of the trust.
“Our vision is to grow big by getting in touch with people who would support us financially, physically as well as spiritually so that we grow big because we don’t want to operate in Chikwawa alone but the whole nation,” concluded Malola.
She however denied any connection between her trust and the political move her husband is in citing that the trust was there before way back in 2011 before her husband was elected as Member of Parliament.
On his part, Group Village Headman Misongwe cited happiness over the gesture by Gwamba to the trust which he described as timely and beneficial.
He said: “I am happy that we had this donation from Gwamba because at this place we have a lot of children who are orphans as well as those living with HIV/AIDS.
The trust has indeed helped people around the communities where some have had their houses built and the physically challenged have received wheel-chairs.
“It is my plea that other musicians as well as other well to do people should emulate the same because as a trust, they need a lot as at most times they have been distributing clothes, food, soap to orphans and other children get school fees assistance to proceed with their education,” he said.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
