Malawi: Abida Mia Distributes Maize Flour to 2000 Households in Chikwawa-Nkombedzi

21 April 2021

At least 2000 households affected by hunger in Chikwawa Nkombedzi Constituency have benefitted from the maize flour donation, which their Member of Parliament (MP) Abida Mia, who is also Deputy Minister of Lands, distributed this week.

Mia reached out to the affected families at Group Village Headman Msomo and Group Village Headman Saopa, both under Senior Chief Ngabu in her Chikwawa-Nkombedzi Constituency.

In an interview after the distribution, Mia said she felt duty-bound to assist her constituents in that way more so when authorities project lower yields in the Shire Valley due to the drought the region suffered in this farming season.

"It is during the time of great need like this that I feel obliged to get closer to my people and assist them in every way possible."

The legislator further called on well-wishers to reach out to those affected in the shire valley.

Mia sourced the donation from the Muslim World League and during the distribution, she was accompanied by the organization's country representative, Noordeen Kaondo, who expressed satisfaction upon seeing that the assistance directly reached the affected beneficiaries.
