Malawi: UK's High School Feeds 400 Straving Families

The St. Peter's Church Aided High School of England has donated maize worth K2 million to nearly 400 families of Sub-Traditional Authority (STA) Chitanthamapiri in Kasungu. The donation follows media reports on how badly the area had been affected by the dry spell most parts of the country experienced during the 2015/2016 growing season. The area under Chitanthamapiri's jurisdiction received almost no rain the past season resulting into complete loss of every crop the subjects had sown. A team of 62 teachers and students from the St. Peter's Church High School flew into the country on July 9 and stayed with the people up to July 26 helping them with irrigation agricultural interventions using the Dwangwa River. Before their departure, the team, led by Andrew Hubbard, had donated K2million for the area's authorities to procure maize for the hundreds of affected families. The maize was procured and donated on Sunday to the families who gathered at Senior Group Village Headman Mnyanja in STA Chitanthamapiri. "We donated the maize to around 394 families from all the villages that were heavily affected by the draught and we are very, very appreciative," one of the subjects, Sapulain Chitonde, told Mana.
