A United States of America based Malawian donates to a person with disabilities in Mzimba

A United States of America based Malawian Thandy Mwawu on Tuesday donated assorted including wheelchair to George Tembo at Nkana Fudu Village in the area of Traditional Authority Mpherembe in Mzimba District.

Speaking when she presented the items on behalf of Mwawu, Jean Mkosi said Mwawu George was moved to make the donation after learning of Tembo’s challenges through social media. 

“She heard about Tembo’s condition from one of his family members through one of the social media platforms hence the donation,” Nkosi said.

Regina Tembo, a sister to George, expressed gratitude for the donor, saying it was hard for their family to take care of her brother due to lack of supporting facilities which could ease his life regardless of his physical disabilities.

“I was hard for us to carry George around but we could not do otherwise because it is our responsibility as a family to take care of him. This donation is timely,” said Regina.

She then appealed to well-wishers to assist the family in maintaining the wheelchair when need arises.
