As he continues his 10-day charity camp in affected districts in Southern Region, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has, so far, reached over 8000 affected households with relief items.
This follows his recent visit to Nsanje District where he donated maize to over 2400 households affected by disasters.
While in Nsanje, Bushiri visited several camps—including hard-to-reach areas where he, together with the DC and other victims, had to ride a boat to appreciate the devastation.
In his speech at one of the camps in the area of Traditional Authority Nyachikadza, Bushiri said his drive to help stems from the painful and disturbing sights of helplessness among several victims of disasters trapped in camps—most of them without food and have their houses swept away.
“We are not assisting these people because we have more, but because with the little we have we can make a difference.
