The Bwaila Mental Clinic fundraiser which was organised by the Sweatfactory Fitness Studio last Saturday has failed to hit even quarter of the targeted amount.
The Sweatfactory Fitness Studio targeted to raise at least 10 million kwacha to cover medication and office furniture at the Lilongwe based Mental Clinic but according to the organiser Miriam Matola the event has just raised less than 1 million kwacha.
“we didn’t get enough donations from companies that we reached and asked for support, so we have failed to hit even 1 million kwacha from today’s event” said Matola.
She further promised to sit down and look for other ways of coming up with the much needed amount for the donation until her mission is accomplished.
Despite her disappointment with the amount raised, Matola was a pleased with the turnup of the participants of the fitness session.
“For the part of the turn up its encouraging, alot of people participated in today’s event am happy for that and I thank them all for the support”
Over one hundred people from all age groups were available for the fitness session that started from around 6 am to 8 am at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
