DJ WAYNE,PROVOICE LAUNCH DIABETES INITIATIVE
Renowned club DJ Wayne and reggae dancehall artist Provoice have joined forces in a bid to raise funds for diabetes ward at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH).
Trading under the banner “Hand in Hand”, on Tuesday, 14 April, Kamuzu Day the duo took time off their busy schedules to donate assorted medicines and food items at the hospital.
Speaking during the donation ceremony, DJ Wayne said the initiative aims at raising funds to buy medicines and equipment at the KCH.
He disclosed that the idea came after being diagnosed with diabetes hence the primary target was the diabetes ward.
“Me and Provoice have a special interest and a common goal. I have been coming to KCH for my medication and noticed how people are struggling.
“Provoice came in because his father also succumbed to diabetes years ago. We understand the hospitals needs a lot but we had to do what we could,” DJ Wayne explained.
According to DJ Wayne, 46 beneficiaries received the donation which was mobilized through a two week social media campaign.
He added: “We also wanted to cheer our friends, share the little we have and celebrate Kamuzu Day in style.”
Kamuzu Central Hospital Deputy Director Mable Chinkhata hailed the donation, saying it would go a long way.
“We are very grateful, especially for the medicine. We hope other individuals and organizations will emulate this great example,” she said.
Concurring with Chinkhata, one of the beneficiary Madalitso Yohane said he was delighted and grateful for the gesture.
Formerly of MBC radio 2 and Dziko FM, DJ Wayne is currently working with Rock City as the resident DJ while Provoice is a reggae dancehall artist well known for “Nkuwe” and “Be you” hit singles.
