Speaking during the function, Senior Officer at Mangochi Prison Thomas Damba thanked the group for the items saying “this will help in feeding the inmates.”
“Despite government assistance to the prisoners they do have some challenges therefore it is very much interesting to see different organizations taking their role in assisting the inmates,” Damba said
On his part, Mangochi District Clinical Officer, Dr Chimwemwe Thambo, expressed his happiness upon receiving the food items saying as the hospital they were not expecting to receive such kind of gifts.
