Nigerian billionaire Dozy Mmobuosi has committed to supporting Tigwirane Manja Housing Project with finances for the construction of 75 houses for cycle survivors in Phalombe and Zomba.

Mmobuosi made the commitment on Tuesday when he donated over MK500 million to the initiative through former President Dr Bakili Muluzi, who is Goodwill Ambassador for Cyclone Freddy.

President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera launched Tigwirane Manja Campaign in March this year a tool to mobilize resources for the cyclone rebuilding process.

Briefing journalists at his BCA Residence in Blantyre on Tuesday during the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Malawi Red Cross Society (MRCS), Muluzi said he has since deposited the money into MRCS’ account, which has been tasked to construct the houses.

“These funds that have come under Tigwirane Manja initiative will go directly to the construction of the houses and provision of other vital shelter to the affected individuals and families,” he said.

Muluzi applauded Mmobuosi Foundation for the support and compassion towards the people of Malawi saying it will have a profound impact on the lives of those displaced and are in urgent need of assistance.

MRCS President, Innocent Majiya said the signing of the MoU signifies the strong partnership and trust that government has in Red Cross.

He joined Muluzi in commending the Foundation for its support towards the affected households saying the organisation is geared to construct standard and durable houses that will withstand natural disasters.

According to Majiya, 45 houses will be constructed in Phalombe while Zomba will have 30, in an exercise that is expected to last four months
