The Spouses Association at the Zambian High Commission in Pretoria has made a contribution of blankets to the Esther Lungu Foundation Trust which will be launched in Lusaka yestrday.
Mrs. Monde Mwamba, wife of Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba has said that the contribution is meant to assist the Trust as it takes off with its challenging work.
Mrs. Mwamba, who has travelled to Lusaka to make the presentation to the Trust on behalf of the Spouses Association, says the group has taken note of the many charity programmes that Mrs. Lungu has been involved in since she became First Lady and realized that the task ahead would still be challenging even as she forms the Trust.
The causes that the Trust has set out to help address affect a large number of our population today. When we thought of the vast number of people that are in need, as the Spouses Association at the High Commission, we felt not only deeply grateful for the First Lady’s courage and vision, but also strongly compelled to help support her good cause,” Mrs. Mwamba said.
The 150 blankets were bought from resources which spouses of diplomats raised as an Association. Diplomatic staff at the Mission also contributed to the consignment.
The Trust is expected to be launched today at Lusaka’s New Government Complex.
