Receiving the items on behalf of the victims, Blantyre City Mayor Noel Chalamanda warned the beneficiaries against the temptation of selling them.

Chalamanda also appealed for love among the victims saying those that have received, should give a chance to others when other items come.

“Let me warn you against selling these items. If we find out that one has sold the items, we will come after you because Protea Hotels Ryalls could have used the money to make profits but they decided to assist us,” said Chalamanda.

Protea Hotel Ryalls Sales & Marketing Executive Florentine Kabefu said her company was touched with what had happened and management decided to do something to avert the suffering of the victims.

“We are glad that we could do something. Our gesture may be small but we believe it will make a difference. Life in camps can be hectic and we wish you all the best as you try to rebuild your lives,” said Kabefu.

Protea Hotel Ryalls donated  190 blankets,  190 bags of flour weighing 10kgs each, 190 packs of beans weighing 5Kgs, 200 plates, 200 cups, 190 bed sheets, 190 bath towels, 190 hand towels, 190 pillows and 190 pillow cases.

Beneficiaries were from Bangwe camp (47 people), BCA Camp (50 people), Mondiwa camp (35 people) and William Mosque camp (55 people).

I can only hope that the donated linen was not part of the obsolete items that the hotel mgt had just approved for disposal.

Nonetheless they will serve the purpose while they last.

I don’t think if the items were really for earmarked for disposal, that makes them insignificant to the beneficiaries! It’s this attitude which makes people like you to think that you have nothing to contribute when you can actually donate items you no longer use. Did you want to buy them?
