Mzuzu University (Mzuni) ‘Friends of Bushiri’ Sunday gave a treat to over a thousand patients at Mzuzu Central Hospital which was also symbolized a launch to a number of charity works they are going to carry out in the country.
The Friends, all of whom are students belonging to all the faculties of the northern region public institution of higher learning, said they believe it is everybody’s obligation in the country to see to it that their neighbour is living a happy and wonderful life.
According to president of the chapter, Brighton Mwenifumbo, they believe in reaching out to the “sick and the down-trodden as prescribed in the good news of Jesus Christ.”
Mwenifumbo said their leader and role model, billionaire Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, believes in making sure that no one is “struggling on our journey” to heaven.
“We don’t stress,” he said, “We want others not to stress too.”
What was presented to the four wards of the hospital which included maternity, TB, post-natal, gynaecology and male wards was a package of milk, bananas, salt, washing and bathing soap among others.
Mwenifumbo said in an after-event interview with Nyasa Times that the charity cost them over K200 000.
“We’ll do more to various people and organisations we feel need support for the greater glory of God,” said Mwenifumbo.
Recently, the chapter was in the papers after it stretched out its begging bowl to Bushiri so that he helps towards the rebuilding of their library which got gutted down by fire late last year.
Major 1, as Bushiri is popularly known, has pledged a whooping K60 million contribution towards the same.
Mwenifumbo said Bushiri “might be coming sooner than later” to hand over the cheque himself to the university.
Nyasa Times understands that the membership of the chapter has risen to over a thousand in a month.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
