She also treated the children and residents of Ndodani Village to a luncheon that took place right at the Orphan centre.

Madam Chilima hailed the founder of the Orphanage, 25-year-old Temwanani Chilenga, a primary school teacher, who single-handedly founded the orphanage with her little resources from her teaching profession.
