The items included 2 packets of sugar, 5 packets of soya and 1litre cooking oil for each child in the group of 30 beneficiaries.

Munthali said the team works with an organization called Y+ in order to identify children who are needy and living with HIV in the district.
“As people are celebrating Easter, we thought it is wise to come and share the little we have to these needy and children living with HIV.As Christians the bible teaches us to be exemplary and demonstrate the spirit of giving,” he said
