Women on Friday partied all night during a Women of Love dinner and dance held at Sunbird Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre.
This was a perfect platform for the women as they were still celebrating Mothers Day which was on Thursday.
Apart from bringing the women together to share ideas, the Women of Love grouping organised the dinner and dance to raise funds to help the children’s ward at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital.
It was a platform that brought mothers and their daughters as they enjoyed the night all the way to the following day with several activities on the menu which included a shooting session, cocktail, dinner, auction and dancing competitions.
There was also a performance by gospel singer Princess Chitsulo, who soared with her song ‘Ndidzaimba Nyimbo,’ which she composed when she was sick.
The song dragged almost all the women in the Njamba room to the dance floor as they enjoyed it from the start to finish.
Guest of honour Ex-High Commissioner to the Republic of South Africa, Stella Ndau hailed women for coming out in large numbers during the event.
“This fundraising event couldn’t have come at a better time than now when we are celebrating womanhood and motherhood. Motherhood is the greatest gift that God gave us women. No gift to a mother can equal her gift to the society so I am happy to see women coming together for a good cause,” she said.
Ndau added that God created women for a reason stressing that becoming a mother makes “you the mother of all children.”
“You become a mother for each sick child, for each wounded child, for each is abandoned child and it because of this God given role, that is why we are here to raise funds for children’s ward and I commend the Women of Love for this initiative,” she said.
Ndau said it was the duty of women to support those in need observing that there are several children at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital who are in desperate need of help.
During an American auction, women battled to win hampers from Candlex Limited which saw the first hamper going away at over K 120,000.
There were also several other prizes which women walked away with during a raffle draw.
But the climax of it all was a dancing competition which saw women shaking it off showing their dancing skills.
The dinner and dance whose master of ceremonies was Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) ’s presenter Gloria Banda started on Friday night and spilled over to the following day.
