In response to the government call for a concerted effort in lessening the suffering of flood victims in the country the Rugby Football Union of Malawi (RFUM) and Super-league teams Big Bullets and Red Lions have come out with separate initiatives.
The RFUM have made a donation of clothes to flood victims through the Baptist Church, and the Union’s Coach Augustine Banda Jr has said that the clothes were sourced from United Kingdom teams.
The donation was handed over to the Church at the College of Medicine Sports Complex in Blantyre, where a thankful Pastor Kenneth Mpemba said the donation was so timely.
The Pastor disclosed that Baptist Church will decide how to distribute the donation as there are many people in need.
“The very fans that buy us tickets and cheer us on during games are suffering and we decided that we do something as this is not only a government thing; it is a national problem,” said Mpemba.
And in a similar gesture, Super League (SL) of Malawi Champions Big Bullets are set to sort it out with fellow SL giants Red Lions to raise money for flood victims.
The game will be played at the giant Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, where Bullets have a big supporters base.
Malawi has been hit by floods with some losing lives and and many people are in need of various assistance. The government has made a public declaration that there is need for different organizations, people and governments to come to the rescue of the survivors.
