Musicians are to unite in a concert to raise money for the people displaced and affected by floods in many parts of Malawi.
On Saturday, January 24, an all-star line-up will perform a benefit concert at the Flood Hall, Lilongwe City Mall – to enhance fundraising efforts for disaster relief in Malawi. The concert is the latest fundraiser in the #Umodzi and #SaveMalawi campaign.
The concert line-up for January 24, includes Tay Grin, Gwamba, Autocrat, Timoteo Malawi, RoyView, Rebirth, PeterMo, LovC, Spark, Cosby Ngumuya, Don Tars, Big Tar, Synik, Mwanache, producer BFB, Martse, Malinga, Ishan Capital, Kell Kay, Aycee and many more with Anne Matumbi hosting the show and DJ Flame on the ones and twos.
At the concert, there will be a booth setup specially for those that would like to make donations, be it cash, foodstuffs and clothing. All earnings from the concert will be given to the Department of Disaster Management.
Since the beginning of 2015, the rains has caused floods that affected 15 districts across Malawi with Nsanje being the worst hit. There are over 85,000 people displaced and 150 known deaths in Nsanje alone.
Nationwide there are up to 175,000 people displaced and 175 known deaths. This is not a problem the nation can fix overnight, this will take months and we call on the people of Malawi and the whole world to do what they can to help the needy.
We cannot replace the lives that were taken nor can we replace antiques but together we can help rebuild lives. There are camps where flood victims took refuge but do not have basic essentials like water, sufficient food, toothbrushes, pots and more.
So today we strive to provide these things to as many victims as we can. Let’s give them a better tomorrow by helping today.
If you are looking for a quick way to help the flood victims, just SMS “Ndife Amodzi” to 140 on Airtel Malawi network.
The code 140 is part and parcel of the campaign dubbed #NdifeAmodzi. This is strictly an SMS code and all well-meaning citizens are called on to send a blank SMS or simply text ‘Ndife Amodzi’ to 140.
Each SMS costs MK100 and all proceeds shall be donated to the Department of Disaster Management and Red Cross. Please send as many SMSs as you can to help our brothers and sisters in need. #NdifeAmodzi
