As one way of trying to support the needy, one of the leading youth organisations in the Northern Region of Malawi, Youth Initiative for Civic Education and Accountability (YICEA), donated various items to a good number of people in some of its project areas in the Northern parts of Mzimba District Malawi.

The organisation through their donors, made this donation after receiving complaints from local traditional authorities and some Community Based Organisations (CBOs) that community members were lacking various life basic necessities and other such as food due persistent famine as a result of the on-going drought that has affected some parts of the country, according to the Country Director of the Organisation, Mr. Albert Chemba Mkandawire.

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Chrisy Ngulube thanked the YICEA for the generous donation and speaking on his turn, the Pastor in the area for the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) of the Living Stonia Synod, Mr. Innocent Mhango, appealed for more support from other organisations in the District to do the same.

The event took place in Elunyeni, Kamuwoli, Khuyu, Thandeka and also Chivwamba respectively and items such as sugar, soap, salt, note books, water buckets, matches and a good number of bags of maize were donated to the People with Disability School for the children, elderly and orphans.
