Fulfilling its promise, the Muslim Association of Malawi in collaboration with Kuwait’s Islamic Heritage Revival Society are distributing food items to the needy people in the country.
On 3rd May 2015 the two organisations distributed food items in Chikwawa district despite the fact that government has started relocating the flood victims into safer areas.
On Monday the 4th May 2015 the distributions carried on in Mangochi district and on 7th May, 2015 the distributions will be done in Chiradzulu district.
Sheikh Enati the Chairman of the African Committee for the Islamic Heritage Revival Society told the people of Chikwawa that his organisation has come back again after they had promised to do so having received a lot of assistance from well wishers in Kuwait.
“Many organisations are supporting us, God –Willing we will continuously be coming to provide relief to our friends here in Malawi. We know that many lives were lost; crops were eroded as a result people have not harvested. For this reason this time around, we have put aside fifteen Million Kwacha to be distributed in three districts. We are also coming back before fasting the Month of Ramadan where we will donate to the flood victims and our Muslim communities Ramadan food hampers,” he added.
The chairman of Muslim Association of Malawi Sheikh Idriss Muhammad added that it the wish of his organisation to help everyone ho as affected by the floods regardless of the faith.
“We do not distribute any lslamic literature in exchange to the food items we are providing. This means that our provisions are not attached to convince anyone of you to become Muslims. You can see I come from Mangochi but we have been frequently coming to Chikwawa because you have been affected more than people from Mangochi.
Speaking on behalf of beneficiaries, Member of Parliament for the area Elias Kareem thanked the Chairman of Muslim Association of Malawi for bringing the guests from Kuwait to provide relief in his constituency.
The victims received 25 Kg of maize floor each, two packets of sugar and five kg of beans.
