Gift of the Givers distributed 600 food parcels and bottled water to vulnerable families in Chiradzulu and Thyolo districts in the Southern Region of Malawi.
In recognition of the first 10 days of the first Month of Muharram of the new Islamic Year, 1440, the beneficiaries of the distribution exercise were identified through the elderly community leaders in the respective rural areas.
The food items contained in the food parcels include 10kg maize flour, 10 packets of soy pieces relish, 1kg sugar, 500g salt and 1 packet of puffs.
A family of 5, from the food parcel, will enable them to be food sufficient for 2 weeks only.
In Malawi, over 3.3 million people are without food due to drought and flooding conditions in some parts of the country arising from the previous agriculture season, having received inadequate rains, and in some instances, floods.
