Alexina told Nyasa Times that she has organised a fundraising walking event on January 24, 2015 at 3pm at Victoria Park in Leicester, UK.

“Everyone must wear a plain white t-shirt,” she said.

“It is £5.00 to take part in the walk. The entire fund will be going to help victims of the Malawi floods,” she said.

Malawi President Peter Mutharika declared a state of emergency in the areas affected; he said an estimated 70,000 people had been forced from their homes.

He appealed for international assistance, saying: “Tents and food are urgently required. Rescue operations are also a priority.”

The former Miss Malawi UK, a lawyer by training who is pursing Masters Degree, said she want to do her bit for her floods-stricken home country and encourages support from Malawians in the UK and friends of Malawi to contribute.

She said the fundraiser is open to anyone who wants to support the cause.

Alexina has created the fundraising page : https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/savemalawi.

“You can donate the money on the fundraising website and also leaving your email address under the comments,” said Alexina.

According to Medecins San Frontiers, also known as Doctors without Borders, around 20,000 people in the country’s southern tip “remain cut off from the rest of the country without food, health care and ways to prevent possible outbreaks.”
