Lilongwe, December 22, 2017: Inspired by the handout mood of the festive season, Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of Lilongwe based Mpahnje Private School Sunday donated K250, 000 worth of items to the Pediatric ward of Kamuzu Central Hospital.

The gesture was designed to instill a giving spirit in the school’s students according to the PTA’s Chairperson, Emily Namakhwa.

“The idea was conceived by us as parents, taking advantage of the Chistmas season, to inspire our children to have a giving spirit and teach them the true meaning of Christmas which is reaching out to the needy,” explained Namakhwa.

The items donated included mattresses, sugar, soap and Seba Soya Pieces whose producing company co-supported the initiative.

The items would help to cushion challenges such as bedding and feeding of admitted patients according to Mary Msofi, Nursing Officer for KCH Pediatric Ward who received the donation on behalf of the referral hospital.

She said: “This is such a blessing and we wish more organization could emulate the gesture because there are many challenges we face here that these kinds of donations could help to cushion.”

Meanwhile, the PTA chairperson, Namakhwa has hinted that the donation was more of the beginning than the end of their charitable work saying they had, through the trip to KCH, observed more challenges than they had earlier imagined.
