Leticia Matache, recently crowened Miss Lilongwe, has started her work on a good note with a donation of assorted medical equipment towards Nthondo Health Centre in the capital Lilongwe last week.
During the presentation ceremony, attended by hundreds of people including expectant mothers, Matache urged would-be mothers to always follow medical advice for safe deliveries and healthy lives.
She also took on the youths, urging them to refrain from sordid behaviours such as smoking and alcohol abuse.
“Instead, you must focus on education,” she advised.
The donation was part of the prize that the Lilongwe queen got from the presidential initiative on safe motherhood.
Presidential initiative on safe motherhood representative Timothy Bonyonga advised, during the function, that mothers “should always use medical centres for safe deliveries.”
Group Village Headmen Nthondo thanked Matache for the “timely donation.”
Miss Lilongwe is expected to launch and outline a ten point project at the end of this month.
These projects will focus on youth participation in development, entrepreneurship, girl and child education.
