Msosa1 Foundation Provides Basic Necessities to the Elderly

Mzuzu City-based Msosa1 Foundation has distributed maize flour and other basic necessities to 60 elderly people on May 26, 2024, aiming to alleviate hunger and other challenges they face.

During the distribution exercise in Masasa Township, the Foundation’s chief executive officer Willard Likwambe Msosa explained that they embarked on this initiative to ease the hardships faced by many people in Mzuzu.

“We decided to carry out this exercise here because Masasa is one of the areas where many people struggle to meet basic needs. After conducting a research, we thought it was a good idea to come here and distribute these items so that the beneficiaries may have something to eat for at least a few days,” said Msosa.

Msosa emphasized that Msosa1 Foundation will continue supporting various vulnerable groups to transform their lives.

“We have planned a lot of charitable activities. We are not going to stop here. We will continue distributing different items to various deserving people across Mzuzu City.

“We also have youth programs through which we support young people by imparting vocational skills that can economically empower them. This does not only curb youth unemployment but also contributes to the development of their families, communities, and the nation at large,” he said, calling on other organizations to support less privileged people in the city.

One of the beneficiaries, Bonifa Phiri, expressed gratitude for the timely donation, noting that the elderly in Masasa are struggling with hunger.

“We, the elderly, are going through difficult times. Some of us go to bed with an empty stomach due to lack of food. So, this donation will go a long way,” she said.

Timothy Chirwa, a representative of Senior Block Leader Chikundula, praised the Foundation for its generosity and urged the organization to assist more people in the area.

“We have many people here who need support. What the Foundation has done is commendable. The beneficiaries will tell a different story. However, I would like to ask the Msosa1 Foundation to consider reaching out to more people,” said Chirwa.

The Msosa1 Foundation is also supporting youths in fields such as tailoring and fashion designing, electrical installation, plumbing, computer and cellphone repairs, and dish installation, among others
