Bushiri raises K50m to help Malawi during Covid-19 pandemic

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, through his humanitarian arm Shepherd Bushiri Foundation (SBF), has announced a coronavirus (Covid-19) response intervention worth about K50 million in Malawi.

Prophet Bushiri: After South Africa, India, US, he takes take COVID-19 fight to Malawi

The intervention is just a continuation of what Bushiri is already doing regarding Covid-19, so far, in South Africa, India and United States of America .

In a media statement, Bushiri says the intervention will see SBF distributing, freely, several amenities  including personal protective equipment (PPE) aimed at preventing the spread of the virus  among disadvantaged communities and, also, areas where essential public services are provided.

“Further, the intervention will also see SBF working with the media in raising awareness of the pandemic, in the rural areas, through production of radio jingles, posters and tracts,” reads the statement signed by Bushir’s  spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo.

Nyondo said some of the already purchased amenities include: hand sanitizers, face masks, surgical gloves and water buckets.

“Some of the targeted beneficiaries includes: villages, prisons, rural health centers, minibus drivers, bicycle taxis and the media,” said Nyondo.

Further, Nyondo revealed that the intervention is already in motion.

According to Minister of Health Jappie Mhango, 50 000 Malawians could die from the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic if the virus first diagnosed in China last December persists for one year.

Mhango said: “If the disease was to hit the country for a year, 85 percent of [the 17.5 million] people will be infected with Lilongwe being the hardest hit.

“Over 85 percent or 16 million people will become infected over one year. Of those infected, it is anticipated that 483 000 people will be hospitalised and 85 000 people will be in critical condition in need of critical care and up to 50 000 people could die directly from Covid-19.”

The minister, who is also chairperson of the Special Cabinet Committee on Covid-19, said this when he fronted his daily news conferences to update the nation on the outbreak.

A good gesture even the maize gesture was excellent.

But why didn’t all these so called prophets warn us of this disease months or weeks in advance?

Did god forget to tell them about this pandemic? Such a big pandemic with lock downs ,deaths and infected and God forgot to warn his so called prophets in advance? I guess all of them can’t be like the Prophet Noah .

I rest my word.

We’ve been warned before by the same Prophet that people are judging today, you were just not aware, busy focusing on the negative rumours.

Maybe in the time of warning we were busy listening to the media speaking ill of them ,let us not fall blind and rise up without eyes

Ingnorance will cause us not to hear cause hearing and listen are two different things, the media takes your attention so that you dont listen to the man of God out there
