Concerned Citizens Timely Voices (CCTV) on Saturday donated food and other relief items to people affected by this year’s floods in the area of Senior Chief T/A Kalonga in Salima District.

Speaking in an interview after the donation, CCTV’s founder Boni Kalindo, said the organization thought it wise to help some of the victims with the food and domestic use utensils because some victims lost almost everything from their homes.

“In the same spirit of shared value, we approached Malawians to contribute for the benefit of those people affected by the floods in Malawi, & I would like to thank those who responded positively to our request,” said Kalindo.

The households that have benefited from the support are those that are seeking shelter at Kalonga evacuation camp after being rendered homeless due to floods that badly hit the district especially Traditional Authority Kalonga.

In reaction to the support T/A Kalonga’s representative Group Village Headman Kalonga, appreciated CCTV for the initiative saying it will reduce the burden of those that have survived the tragedy. Kalonga warned the beneficiaries not to sell the relief items.

“It is a habit for some people to sell the free distributed relief items instead of making use of them in their homes,” lamented Kalonga.

Over 300 households from T/A Kalonga received relief items such as flour, beans, salt, plastic basins, & plates.
CCTV is a newly formed organization and is to be launched in March this year.
