Visit of President Banda

On 3rd September 2013 LUV was delighted to host a visit from the President of Malawi, Mrs Joyce Banda. She spent over an hour with the patients, listening to their concerns and offering gifts of blankets and food. Speeches were made by the President, by Fr Francis Kachere who supervises the leprosy community and by the patients elected Headman.

People came from many villages in the surrounding district and after her departure a traditional celebration was held, with special food, drinks, music and dancing. LUV would like to thank Mrs Banda for her visit, which will hopefully be the first of many.
