Abida Mia: Reach and touch

Some of the items collected by Abida

The pattern of destitution brought on by the flood waters from recent cyclonic rains has affected thousands of families mainly across the two southern districts of Nsanje and Chikwawa.

Well wishers from a cross section of life have been pouring in with their donations in support of Abida Mia’s noble cause

Among the donated items are blankets, bedsheets, sanitary towels, clothes, plastic sheets, bags of maize and fish, just to mention a few.

Additionally, other people of goodwill have come forward with cash  donations in form of cheques and one of them is businessman, Ceaser Fatchi, who apart from goods worth K500 000  had also donated a cheque of K1 million.

After presenting the donation, Fatchi told reporters that, he came up with the donation after he felt obliged to respond to the call for urgent help towards flood victims that have been devastated by floods and are currently facing multiple hardships and challenges  inoder to survive.

Said Fatchi: “I was deeply t ouched upon learning about what our fellow Malawians are going  through and I thought it was the best thing to do to reach out to those people through Abida Mia’s initiative.”

Overwhelmed by the huge support, Abida Mia expressed gratitude to all people of goodwill who have supported to her charitable initiative, including the many who continue to submit their pledges.

During her visits to the flood affected places, Mia who is also a woman empowerment activist, was greatly touched by the plight of women and girls in the flood affected areas.

After witnessing the plight of victims, in the flood affected places of Chikwawa and Nsanje, Mia narrates the striking ordeal of people who go for days without food and are living in extremely inhumane conditions of overcrowding, sleeping on bare floor, poor sanitation, lack of clean water and shortage of toilets.

“We need to help the flood victims, mostly are destitute people. This is about human life, human dignity and human rights,” she said.

According Mia,  who is also a politician, all the reliefs items collected will be urgently and equally distributed to the affected people in the worst hit places of Chikwawa and Nsanje, where through the watchful eyes of media  and that she distributes without considering their  political and religious affiliations.

Mia said the affected households are in dire need of life saving interventions such as food, shelter, water and sanitation.

Its not a registered trademark by MBC. Thats why we have a lot of people with same first names or surnames. Unlike company, party and organization names that ate registered trademarks. Reach out and touch can be anything anyone does.
Understood?

My Friend, if you can afford to buy boom in your house, say thank you to the Creator. Others see it a great life intervention when they are given boom once, even just once
