Mr and Miss Mzuni donated items worth K100 000 (about $400) to Tapokera Orphanage in the outskirts of Mzuzu on Saturday.
Miss Mzuni, Josephine Mpango, said she thought of sourcing funds from well-wishers and donate to the vulnerable.
â€œWe mobilised a campaign whereby the students willing to donate were asked to miss a meal, from which, accumulatively, we managed to buy the items,â€ Mpango said.
The miss-a-meal campaign raised a bag of Irish potatoes, a bag of rice and cooking oil. Other donations such as five bags of cement, two bales of sugar, two crates of soft drinks, notebooks, Likuni Phala and clothes, were made with funds from Professor Peter wa Mutharika, Southern Bottlers Limited and Nthambazale Transport.
â€œWe are just a platform to reach out to the needy, as such, we are always looking for well wishers to support us,â€ she said.
Tapokera Orphanage, which has over 70 orphans, was demolished to pave way for FIFA Goal Project in Luwinga and it is in the process of rebuilding new premises.
This is the first time Mr and Miss Mzuni has made a donation since they entered office.
