Sunday,9th October, 2022, The Member of Parliament (MP) for Chikwawa Nkombezi Constituency Abida Sidik Mia has donated a brand new ambulance to her constituents worth MK 8 Million.
Mia who is also the Minister of Water and Sanitation in the Tonse Alliance Administration says the ambulance is expected to improve health services in the constituency.
“I donated an Ambulance valued at K8 million at Saopa Community ground. This is the second donated ambulance since I assumed my parliamentary position to serve the people,”
“It will go a long way in improving health delivery services to the people in our constituency and will complement the Therere Health Centre, a multi-million Kwacha facility that was funded in part by the Constituency Development Fund and mostly by the Japanese Embassy,” she says.
After the donation Mia proceeded to launch a K10 million football tournament to promote youth development and identify local talent.
“In my time as legislature I have been working on various youth empowerment programs that enable the youth to gain valuable skills. Such skills include driving, cooking and sewing, that they can use to generate income. Engaging the youth in this manner also deters them from partaking in activities detrimental to their wellbeing and their future,” Mia says.
Mia adds,” As a development-conscious legislator, I remain wholeheartedly committed to promoting community development in my constituency, and Malawi at large.”
Mia also reiterated that she is focused on advancing the construction of more schools, health centres, bridges and provision of access to clean and safe water.
