Blantyre-based Kalibu Ministries and Kalibu Academy on Sunday rolled out a K10 million relief effort to Shire Valley flood victims.
Each beneficiary received a plastic bucket, a roll of plastic sheet, soap, matches, a bottle of chlorine, sugar, a kilogramme (kg) of meat, cabbage, soya pieces, 10 kg of maize flour and clothes.
Kalibu Kwa Yesu Ministries administrator, who is also Kalibu Academy head teacher, Paisley Mabvutula, said they have started the programme with Chikwawa and Nsanje because they are areas of their immediate concern.
“We also want to reach out to other areas like Phalombe and other affected districts. In short, I would say as the Lord provides, we intend to reach out to more,” he said.
Mabvutula said the relief programme was initiated by Kalibu Kwa Yesu Ministries and Kalibu Academy director Pastor Michael Howard who said the school will expand their relief programme to other areas of need they identified.
Margaret Livison, a beneficiary from Traditional Authority Kasisi in Chikwawa, thanked Kalibu for the gift after their possessions got lost in the floods.
Gaius Phiri, a Form Five student at Kalibu Academy, said they were moved to participate in the programme after seeing pictures of the affected areas. n
