The President of the Republic of Malawi, Dr Bakili Muluzi, has expressed his sincere appreciation of Islamic Relief’s aid work in Malawi.
In a letter addressed to Islamic Relief’s President, Dr Hany El Banna, the Malawi President referred to IR’s agricultural and irrigation projects, calling the work “timely and overwhelming”.
Dr Muluzi went on to urge the organisation to continue in its efforts as Malawi faces a severe famine. Nearly 3.5 million people in the country are in desperate need of food.
Working in partnership with the ZamZam Foundation, Islamic Relief is concentrating its work in the Zomba district of southern Malawi. IR is working to address the long and short-term needs of almost 19,000 people, across 10 villages.
