The former Malawi leader who is also People’s Party (PP) President spent her day in the community in Domasi doing her outreach work where she distributed fortified food packs to women living positively with HIV/AIDS.

Banda said, “Research is telling us that those with underlying health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, HIV/AIDS and other complications are vulnerable when it comes to Covid 19 and it is incumbent upon all of us in our respective personal capacities to help government sensitize the communities and help in whatever little way we can to enable them access clean water for hygiene, nutritious food as well as masks.”


She further said that she is very committed to see lives of rural people especially the poor and the vulnerables transformed for the better.
