Second Deputy Speaker Distributes Iftar Food Packs for Ramadan
At least some two thousand Muslim hunger-stricken families in the area of Traditional Authority Chimwala in Mangochi will have some food when breaking their fast during this holy month of Ramadan, thanks for their parliamentarian Aisha Mambo Adams.
Adams who is also the second deputy speaker of parliament said she distributed the Iftar food packs to less privileged families in her Mkungulu Constituency with support from Malawi Relief Fund UK to make sure they have something to eat as most families do not have food.
“Already most of these people do not have food and tropical Cyclone Freddy has worsened their situation, so after asking our friends out there they gave us these food packs to give them,” said Adams.
The parliamentarian who asked the beneficiaries not to think much on their current situation, but focus on rebuilding, said the process will not be easy but is possible with dedication.
“Malawi needs more prayers as it is in the process of salvaging from the loss of tropical cyclone Freddy caused, and it will only be possible if Malawians stand together, so I ask my fellow Muslims to dedicate our prayers on peace during the holy month so that the rebuilding process should be easy,” said Adams.
Esnart Kaisi, one of the beneficiaries from Njingama Village, thanked their parliamentarian for the gift saying most families don't have food.
