His Worship Councillor Wild Ndipo has appealed to well-wishers to continue donating face masks towards the Donate a Mask Campaign which the Blantyre City Council is running.
The Mayor was speaking at Limbe Primary School on Friday (25 September 2020) when he handed over 10,000 face masks to vulnerable leaners in all the six educational zones in the City.
“The Council is aware that in the implementation of Covid-19 measures as Gazetted by the Government, some households may find observing these measures to be economically challenging,” said Ndipo. “It is heart-breaking that there are families in our city faced with the difficult choice to either buy a face mask for everyone, or to buy food.”
So far, the campaign has received support of face masks from Jacaranda School for Orphans (1,000), Pacific Limited (5,000) Universal Trading (5,000 masks and five thermo-scanners), National Bank of Malawi (1,000) and Blantyre Sports Club golfers (750).
His Worship Councillor Wild Ndipo, Mayor of Blantyre City is running a campaign to mobilise face masks for the less privileged residents especially learners in public schools.
The Donate a Mask Campaign followed the Malawi Government Gazette of 7th August 2020, which instituted new Covid-19 precautionary measures which among other things made wearing of face masks mandatory.
“My office is aware that in the implementation of Covid-19 measures as Gazetted by the Government, some households may find observing these measures to be economically challenging,” said Ndipo.
“It is heart-breaking that there are families in our city faced with the difficult choice to either buy a face mask for everyone, or to buy food,” added the Mayor.
The campaign is targeting to raise at least 15, 000 face masks and so far four companies and organisations have donated.
Jacaranda School for Orphans was the first to donate 1, 000 reusable face masks followed by Pacific Limited (5, 000), then Universal Trading which donated 5, 000 surgical face masks and five thermos scanners while National Bank of Malawi donated 1, 000 pieces.
