We Can Never Appreciate War Veterans Enough – Chilima

November 13, 2016 by Staff Reporter

Malawi’s Vice President Saulos Chilima on Friday called on Malawians to ceaselessly support veterans of the First and Second world wars, saying their sacrifice could not be appreciated enough.

Chilima was speaking at Lilongwe’s Golf Club where he graced the Veterans’ Charity Golf Tournament the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) organized.

“We enjoy this peace today because these people we call veterans sacrificed a lot, but although we call them veterans today, that’s not what they were on the battle field. They risked their lives,” he said.

Chilima said the golf tourney was only one small token of appreciation to the veterans’ noble cause.

He challenged Malawians to do more in form of donation to support the day-to-day welfare of the veterans.

The event also included fundraising activities such as sale of poppy ribbons and a raffle draw. Proceedings will go to the same initiative.
