On Saturday, the former Malawi leader, who is also People’s Party (PP) President spent her day in the community in Domasi doing her outreach work.

Banda distributed fortified food packs to women living positively with HIV/AIDS.

Said Banda: “Research is telling us that those with underlying health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, HIV/AIDS and other complications are vulnerable when it comes to Covid 19. It is incumbent upon all of us in our respective personal capacities to help government sensitize the communities and help in whatever little way we can to enable them access clean water for hygiene, nutritious food as well as masks.”

She said she is committed to see lives of rural people especially the poor and the vulnerable transformed for the better.

“I shall praise God forever for his favour that I can be able to do this work for 40 years. I will continue reaching out to my fellow women and children, it is my calling,” said Banda.

As a way of promoting education through school feeding program,  Banda continue feeding children orphans and vulnerable children.

“At this centre, we have 350 children. We have 10 centres in Zomba Malosa and 31 centres in some districts across Malawi. After closure of four months due to Covid 19, we reopened the first feeding centre this past week at the Joyce Banda Foundation Community Centre Called Nsigalira named after my great grandmother,” she said.

Nsigalira is in the area of Kalembo Village, Group Village Headman Ntogolo, Traditional Authority, (T/A) Malemia in Zomba.

The former Malawi leader is also implementing a project of making and distributing reusable masks countrywide.

“I am pleased that today, we received a donation of sewing machines from a well-wisher to enable us reach out to many with the reusable face masks,” said Banda.

Dr Joyce Banda is well known for her charity works as she is recognized internationally for impacting lives of many including women, children and the vulnerable.
