A grouping of women from Chirimba Seventh Day Adventist church in Blantyre, Come to Jesus Sisters on Sunday donated solace items worth K5.7 million to survivors of Tropical Cyclone Ana at Kamseche camp in Chikwawa district.

Speaking after the donation, Chairperson for the grouping, Judith Mponda said apart from evangelizing the word of God they were also obliged to do charitable works to underprivileged people who include survivors of different catastrophes.

Mponda then heaped praise on to people who contributed towards the cause which has seen 505 households aiding saying on their own they couldn’t achieve it.

Chairperson for Kamseche camp, Charles Suwetala commended the grouping for the gesture.

During the donation, each household received 10 kilograms of maize flour, sugar, salt, laundry soap and clothes.

While calling upon other well wishers to emulate Come to Jesus Sisters, Suwetala said food is the main challenge they are facing.

He called on government through Department of Disaster Management Affairs and Chikwawa district council to speed up the process of purchasing land for them between Misili and Sande villages in the area of Traditional Authority Maseya in the district saying they won’t go back to Kamseche in the area of Paramount Chief Lundu after being hit hard by the January 24 disaster.

A representative from Chikwawa disaster office, Frank Phiri thanked the group for coming to their rescue and has since asked others to follow suit.
