Hundreds of Malawians benefit from eye clinics

Hundreds of Malawians who have eye problems over the past week received free reading glasses after being properly examined by doctors during eye clinics organised in partnership with Love Malawi Festival.

The free eye clinics began on Monday August 15 up to Friday August 19, 2016 and were held at Living Waters Church in Area 25, M’buka CCAP Church in Area 36, Kafita CCAP Church in Area 23, Assemblies of God Church in Chinsapo and Dzaleka Refugee Camp.

Love Malawi Festival Coordinator Reverend Grey Mwalabu said they set aside a total of 10,000 pairs of reading glasses to give for free to people with problems.

One of the beneficiaries, Robert Secret Munlo from Chinsapo who has lived with an eye problem for over five years, expressed excitement for receiving reading glasses which he said are now helping him read his bible and any book without problems.

“I have got eye problem particularly the first one (pointing his right eye), I was failing to read my bible and any textbook. It was great concern for me.

“When I heard that Love Malawi Festival is giving eye reading glasses for free I did not hesitate to come,” said Munlo who thanked Love Malawi Festival for the gift.

Another 52 year-old, Dickson Chiwoza Nkhoma from Chiwoza village in Mpingu disclosed that his problem began in 2014 and the same year he went to see the doctor but the main challenge was finding money to buy a pair of reading glasses.

“I have been feeling pain when reading passages.” He said “Now, Love Malawi Festival doctors have given me the glasses and prayers. These glasses are helping me because I can now see texts clearly and I am able to read without problems.”

Love Malawi Festival is part of a larger story in Africa that involves 10 Capital Cities in 10 years – a vision of international evangelist Andrew Palau.

The Malawi festival will be concluded today in Lilongwe in the open fields near Maula Prison where Palau will preach and there will also be performances by various musicians.
