Chairman of MAO-UK Mr. Sony Pandekar made the announcement in Leicester in the United Kingdom during the launch of a joint Malawi Relief Effort fundraising campaign with Sebras Radio on Monday, 2 March, 2015.

Mr. Pandekar said, “I can say we already have raised money for 100 new homes. With this appeal launch, and if all logistics are put in place, we want to adopt the affected villages and help them build long and sustainable livelihoods. We want to go into all the 15 affected districts.”

Member of British Parliament for Leicester East Keithe Vaz, said he was encouraged by the great contributions that Malawians of Asian origin play in the City. He made a personal donation of £101.00 to the appeal and announced that he will personally host the final fundraising event for the appeal will be held at the House of Commons.

Malawi Deputy High Commissioner John Tembo Jnr thanked the Malawian Asians in the United Kingdom for responding to the appeal by President Peter Mutharika.

“Many of you left Malawi many years ago, but this gesture shows the passion and love you have for your homeland. I can assure you that the administration of President Mutharika will facilitate and make sure that the most affected areas benefit from your assistance,” said Tembo.

Apart from the Parliamentarian, Sabras Radio which hosted the launch live, donated £500.00 to the appeal and Assistant Mayor Bi Demster also made a personal donation. The appeal also attracted a Ugandan of Asian origin Shama, who walked in during the launch and donated £31.00.

MAO was formed in 1982 mainly by Malawians of Asian origins who left after Government issued an order restricting rural areas to indigenous Malawians in the mid 1970’s.

As a Malawian I’m disgusted at all your comments. At least some out there is helping us!! Have any of us locally as in black Malawians done anything?? The mwenyes every week are out distributing relief packs to our sisters and brothers. So you monkeys with negative comments go and learn how to thank. Racism and hatred gets you NO WHERE!!!
