Habitat Donates MK1.9 million Construction Materials to Malawi Police Service
Driven by the vision of a Malawi where everyone has a decent place to live and a mission of seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity Malawi (HFHM) supported South Lunzu Police Station with various construction materials to assist in the construction of a shed and some offices at the Police station. Some of the construction tools and materials include brickforce wire, galvanised wire, wire nails, dump proof course, plastic drums, wheelbarrows, lime patty, and shovels to the tune of K1,901,875.00.
Presenting the donation to South Lunzu Police on behalf of Board and Management for Habitat for Humanity Malawi, the Construction Coordinator, Architect William Kachikopa, had this to say, ‘Despite that Police wrote to us a request for assistance, we at Habitat acknowledge the complementary services of Police in our work. Without Police providing public safety and protecting the rights of persons in Malawi, our efforts towards decent housing for all would be futile. As such, Malawi Police Service is a key stakeholder in alleviating housing poverty in Malawi. And when we learnt of their plans to construct some offices and shed, we were quick to support. That is why we are here today to present this donation of various construction materials to Police worthy MK1.9 million.
On behalf of the Officer in Charge (OC), the Station Officer Mphwatiwa expressed sincere gratitude to Habitat for Humanity Malawi for the kind gesture saying; “This is a contribution to the entire community, as the Police is in service to all.” He further said that the neighbourly heart demonstrates what a true humanitarian organisation Habitat for Humanity Malawi is.
