Today marked a significant milestone for the community of Group Village Headman Nyachikadza, T/A Nyachikadza in Nsanje, as a generous food distribution event brought smiles and relief to 250 beneficiaries.
Thanks to the collective efforts of Act Alliance Malawi and the hardworking team at CARD, the community received a much-needed lifeline. The distribution included 25 kilograms of maize flour, 10 kilograms of beans, 10 kilograms of soya blend, and 2 liters of cooking oil.
The event was graced by Act Alliance Malawi Coordinator Felix Minjale and CARD's Deputy Program Manager Lameck Nkhoma, who witnessed firsthand the impact of their partnership and support.
In his heartfelt remarks, Minjale praised CARD for its dedicated work in improving the lives of communities and urged the organization to further collaborate with faith-based institutions in its implementation.
Belita Symon, one of the beneficiaries, could not hold back her tears of joy. She expressed her gratitude, saying that these food items would go a long way in combating hunger issues in her household. Belita's story represents the hope and positivity that this initiative has brought to so many lives.
This initiative is made possible by funding from Act Alliance, and CARD is currently carrying out a 4-month project in response to Cyclone Freddy in Nsanje. Among its various goals, the project aims to deliver vital food assistance to 250 households in both the short and medium term, while also playing a role in enhancing Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH conditions). Therefore, the project will also provide WASH items and distribute seeds once to support their livelihoods.
Today's event is a testament to the power of collaboration and community support. It reminds us that when organizations and individuals come together with a shared goal, positive change becomes a reality. We look forward to witnessing the continued transformation and improvement of lives in Nsanje.
