Member of Parliament for Mangochi Nkugulu Constituency Aisha Mambo Adam’s has reached out to 196 elderly in the area of Senior Chief Chimwala in the district.
Adam’s who is also Secretary for Women Parliamentary Caucus said she decided to cheer the elderly bearing in mind numerous challenges they encounter.
She said the initiative was also part of launching Friends of Aisha, a grouping which will be handling charitable activities to the elderly and the needy regardless of political and religion affiliation.
She further admitted that it’s not only a responsibility of politicians to take care of the elderly and the needy but it’s a role of every citizen.
Meanwhile one of the beneficiaries Jawa Haji has expressed gratitude and commended Adam’s for the donation.
He said the items will help them a lot but was quick to ask for more help as many elderly cannot work and feed for themselves because of their age.
Some of the items donated are packs of maize flour, soap, salt and zitenje
