Kaliati: Drills women on economic independence.

Kaliati was speaking in Mangochi on Monday when she joined women of Madalitso Women Empowerment group from Mulanje as they were celebrating their group’s one year anniversary.

She said women can make a great impact in the social and economic development of the country hence all women need to join such groups for the betterment of the country.

The minister further said upon joining such groups, women will as well learn from their friends on how they can use available money, how they can keep it and also how they can take care of their families.

In her speech, leader of Madalitso Women Empowerment Esther Namondwe said she has gained more from associating with the other members of the group.

Namondwe added that many women in Mulanje have become independent with the establishment of Madalitso Women Empowerment and similar groups.

She then called on other women in the country to join women groups to become independent and to develop the country.

Hello friends my name is Samuel Kamau I was one of those millions of people around the world suffering from HIV/AIDS and and i was healed through the help of DR Abumen I was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2012, I had no hope and felt useless. All these negative feelings quickly suppressed my body immune system and my body started to deteriorate quickly with physical signs of rapid weight loss, my story began to change for good when i met DR Abumen through a woman’s testimony, he sent me an herbal medicine which i took for some days, after taking the medicine according to doctor’s instruction I went to the hospital to get my blood tested for HIV/AIDS. The doctors were amazed when my first blood test result came back negative. They asked me to go back again for another test, which I did and the result came back negative.
