The Commonwealth Ex-servicemen Of Malawi CELOM has commended Shiraz Ferreira of SF International for the donation of K2 million to war heroes as part of 2019 Poppy Day commemorations.
Colonel Jones Giva thanked Ferreira for assisting the war veterans who fought in two world wars, saying the support will ease the challenges the veterans face in their daily lives.
“We are grateful to Shiraz Ferreira for the donation that have been given to our war veterans,” he said.
One of the war veterans, who fought in World War 2 and is also the chairperson of all veterans, Graciano Mpinda thanked Ferreira, saying the donation would help them in their everyday undertakings.
The donation was presented at a function which drew together dosens of veteran soldiers and senior Malawi Defence Force (MDF) officials at the Cobbe Barracks in Zomba.
Speaking when he presented the cheque on behalf of the company’s Managing Director Ferreira, SF International’s Lewis Kalolokesya said their company decided to give something to the ex-soldiers in relation to the Remembrance Sunday.
