Six top gospel musicians have teamed up for a show at Robins Park in Blantyre on Easter Monday April 6 to raise funds for a multipurpose complex under construction at St. James CCAP Church in Zingwangwa Township.
The Gospel Show, dubbed He is Alive Music Concert, will have Favoured Martha, Princess Chitsulo, King James Phiri, The Anglican Voices, Allan Chirwa and Grace Chinga on the playlist to raise funds for a project which will house an under-five clinic, among others.
In an interview with The Nation, Frank Jomo, St. James CCAP Church Fundraising chairperson, said the budget for the project is pegged at K400 million.
“The Under-Five Clinic will benefit the people of Zingwangwa, Chilobwe, Green Corner, Manase, Somba and other surrounding areas. It will benefit a cross section of people regardless of their faith,” he said.
Jomo said once completed the project will not only transform the face of Zingwangwa but also help children under the age of five have access to good medical care.
“As a church we conduct different fundraising activities in order to raise funds for the project. Proceeds of the concert will support the project,” he said.
He said the concert has been pegged at K1 000 per head.
“We ask all Malawians of goodwill to come and patronise the show in order to help the church realise its dream of having a medical facility that will provide ultra modern medical services to the less privileged of the society,” said Jomo.
