New sick ward for Chichiri inmates

There were ululations and excitement in the air last Friday when Archbishop Tarcisius Ziyaye of Blantyre Archdiocese officially opened and blessed a 15 bed sick ward at Chichiri Prison.

Archbishop Ziyaye encouraged self-support in charity work among Malawians and not only relying on outside help. He also preached about God’s love for all and disclosed how many years back at Lilongwe diocese he prayed with “our friends” at Maula prison.

Ziyaye thanked the Italian Episcopal conference (IEC) which donated the furnished clinic through the initiative of Sister Anna Tommasi, a missionary from Italy. In the pictures, prisoners including those in a Catholic and CCAP choir and paralegals watch the proceedings.
