She said: “We will be distributing food up to the month of February, 2016 and each family will be receiving a bag.”

Commenting on the issue, one of the beneficiaries, Wyson Unda said the donation will enable him to survive in the coming days.

“I am very thankful to Blantyre Synod. We have been surviving on boiled mangoes as supper,” he said.

Zomba is one of the districts that were hit by heavy rains that affected most parts of the country earlier this year.
