Unicaf University Donates Relief Items to Cyclone Freddy Survivors in Malawi

The devastating effects of Cyclone Freddy, which hit Malawi in March 2023, have resulted in many deaths, severe damage to properties, and left a lot of people homeless and living in camps. The Malawian government has urged its citizens and all well-wishers to help with relief items to support the victims, particularly in the heavily affected areas of Nsanje, Thyolo, Mulanje, Phalombe, Blantyre, Chikwawa, Zomba, Mangochi, and other areas in the Southern region.

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Unicaf University in Malawi has donated relief items through the Red Cross Society Malawi to support the Cyclone Freddy survivors. The donation, worth 2 Million MWK, included cartoons of cooking oil, bales of salt, bales of sugar, bales of Soya pieces, and blankets.

Dr Robert Ridley, Vice-Chancellor of Unicaf University in Malawi, presented the items to the Red Cross Society Malawi, accompanied by Unicaf University students. During the presentation, Dr Ridley stated that the university believes in giving back to society and saw this as an opportunity to show assistance and support to the cyclone survivors. He expressed his hope that the emergency relief items would assist the survivors in rebuilding their lives and communities.

In response, Mercy Chalimba, on behalf of the Red Cross Society Senior Management, thanked Unicaf University for the generous donation and support. She appreciated the University for being a responsible and caring organisation that is always ready to support communities in times of need.

Unicaf University is committed to contributing to the development of communities and promoting social responsibility. The University will continue to engage in CSR activities to support the communities around them.
