Leader and founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering the Jesus Nation Church Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has announced the resumption of food distribution to over 1 million hunger stricken individuals across the country.
Making the announcement at Mzuzu Warehouses, Prophet Bushiri said the initiative aims at distributing 17 thousand metric tons of maize amounting to 14 billion Kwacha.
“I believe we can all hold hands at this time to assist the vulnerable. I do know as business minded people, we have to make profits, however, we can share the little we have. It is not proper to just make money at the expense of poor struggling hunger stricken people. I had all the liberty to sell this maize and make a lot of money, but, I feel it is not time to prioritize our business interests over starving Malawians. Therefore, let everyone with anything little, help!” he said.
Prophet Bushiri also thanked the President Lazarus Chakwera and his government for all the efforts he is doing to make sure that people are food secure and emphasized that he is such an inspiration.
He called on companies, organizations and all well-wishers to join hands in rescuing millions of Malawians who have been affected by hunger in all the regions of the country.
According to Prophet Bushiri, the initiative will rescue millions of Malawians who have been affected by hunger due to various reasons including Cyclone Freddy, dry-spells among others.
He has since asked for corporation from government officials and the community at large to ensure smooth distribution of the items which also include rice and cash handouts.
