Chinese Assist the Needy

Mafeteng – The Chinese Embassy in collaboration with the Chinese Business Community in Mafeteng will donate food parcels to 500 vulnerable households at an event to be held on Friday.

The Information Officer in the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftainship Affairs, Mr. Rorisang Manka said the activity forms part of contributions towards relief of the current food shortage among the nation, following severe drought experienced since September last year.

Mr. Manka said the beneficiaries are vulnerable households from eight constituencies of the district and each constituency is expected to release about 63 recipients, saying the beneficiaries will be taken from lists compiled for programmes by non-governmental organizations to assist vulnerable families.

Similar assistance has been provided to vulnerable households in the Leribe and Berea districts.
