The items have been handed over to World Vision to distribute to the flood victims in Malawi.

Speaking during the  handoverceremony, Malawi High Commissioner Brigadier General Marcel R.D. Chirwa (Rtd),  said Malawi was hit by the worst floods in the country’s living memory that affected 15 of the 28 districts, killing at least 200 people; and displacing thousands more.

He noted that in response to an appeal for assistance to well-wishers was made by President Peter Mutharika, the Malawi Community in Kenya and other well-wishers quickly heeded the call.

He observed that over two  tons of items (assorted bales of clothing, blankets, zitenje and shoes) have been given by the community to World Vision for forwarding to our brothers and sisters in Malawi.

Chirwaalso took time to commend the response of international agencies such as World Vision who have been in the fore to assist the victims of these floods. He also expressed appreciation to the Malawi Community and the efforts of the AMAKE Executive Committee for coordinating collections.

Chairman of AMAKE, Mr. Robert T. Hanjahanja expressed gratitude to Malawians and friends of Malawi who had responded to the plea for help in an overwhelming manner, and he also appreciated the readiness of  World Vision to partner with Malawians in Kenya and facilitate the logistics needed to get these items to those in need.

It was also noted that there would be another fund raising event at the High Commission on the 7th of February where cash contributions would be collected and in a similar manner, forwarded to those in need in Malawi.

    This is very good. At least “aMalawi tiziyamba ndifeyo” other than wholly relying on well-wishers from overseas. This is a sign that we care and are growing in maturity. Well done aMalawi anzathu in Kenya and those in South Africa. I only hope that such well meaning assistance does not end in houses of officials at Capital Hill and Local Councils. Malawians appear to have a knack for “kusolora” in each and every initiative. Chonde let’s not discourage the would-be philanthropists with our unsatiable thieving.

    This is the way how our Envoys should conduct themselves, if these were Malawians in Japan the headlines should have read “The Malawi Ambassador to Japan has organized donations for flood victims”. Well done Major General Chirwa!
