Bela and friends from London, United Kingdom have donated three sewing machines and three rolls of printed materials to Malawi Council for the Handicapped (Macoha) Centre in Lilongwe.
Presenting the donation on behalf of the well-wishers, Nagin Patel said they wanted to help Macoha with resources.
He said: “I have known about Macoha for a long time. So, I decided to share what we have with them.
“We hope the items will address some of the problems the institution is facing.”
On his part, Macoha acting regional manager (Centre) Alexander Sinoya said the donation came at the right time.
“The students will use the machines during learning,” he said.
Sinoya appealed to well-wishers to help the institution as it is struggling to pay utility bills and buy tools for some courses.
The well-wishers also donated a bag of rice.
Macoha was established in 1979 by government and it provides vocational skills such as tailoring and cosmetology to people with disabilities.
The centre depends much on government funding and donations.
