As the fight against Covid-19 still rages on in the country, Keep and Encourage Center (KECE), a Zomba youth-led organization has expressed its commitment in reaching out to most vulnerable communities in the district. KECE Deputy Director Peter Kamanga said this on Saturday in Zomba as they donated assorted items to 21 elderly people at Thom Allan area, Traditional Authority Chikowi in the district. According to Kamanga, KECE through the charity works want to reduce problems that the elderly are facing in their homes. Kamanga said they decided to reach out to the elderly after establishing that they lack necessities. KECE members donating to elderly “We were inspired to donate these items looking at the social problems that are negatively affecting the elderly people in this COVID-19 pandemic period. With the little that we have donated today, as KECE we believe will help the elderly people” said Kamanga. Kamanga also said that the organization targeted the elderly people on grounds that this is a group of people are the most vulnerable to be casualties of Covid-19 pandemic. Speaking to Nthanda Times after receiving the donation, one of the beneficiaries John Lipato thanked KECE for the timely gesture. “The help has come at the right time when we are facing financial challenges to buy our basic needs as money is now a big problem in searching for it,” said Lipato. KECE donated items such as soap, soya pieces, salt, candles and sugar. Sharing is Caring!
