Chilima shared a hamper to patients containing soap, biscuits, Sobo and sugar, among other items.

“As we celebrate the birth of  Jesus Christ, its very important that we also consider those who will not have time to be with their families due  to some problems,” said Mrs Chilima.

“As you know this is Christmas time, we thought of celebrating it with the sick, hence the donation,” she added.

Mrs Chilima said emphasized the need for Malawians to have a giving heart.

Lilongwe District Health Officer Dr Mwawi Mwale hailed Mrs Chilima for the donation, saying they were “very grateful.”

Mwale said: “There are a lot of facilities she could have visited but we are very happy that she selected Bwaila Hospital. Some patients have had a feeling to spend Christmas with their families but due to some problems
they have failed and that’s when they need someone to put a smile on their faces.

“This donation does not excites patients only but also health workers because they will be working with happy people.”

Bwaila maternity wing is supposed to accommodate 250 patients, but due to high demand, it has up to 400.

The maternity registers up to 50 births per day, 1,400 to 1,600 per month, and 16,000 to 18, 000 per year.

Good deeds indeed. Koma it is very clear that it was a photoshoot for you. Kunyamula mwana and not connecting with the mother but posing for the camera. SAD. Next time dont care so much about the camera try to be more genuine. Zikuonelka kuti Saulos had political ambitions from the age of 5 than APM. Saulos knew and therefore in hhis choice of a wife he also chose carefully. someone befitting a first lady. While APM his ambitions developed because his brother pushed him towards that. And choice of a First Lady also shows. Very rushed and not suitable.

Mail Chilima! thanks for the initiative. Continue planning your own activities, and not following the president and first lady everywhere like a puppet. Actually you do not have to attend every event by the president. Do like the previous VP wives by not following the president everywhere.
