Speaking during media briefing held yesterday at his office when
receiving a donation of mattresses to the ministry, Mulenga said the
donation will go a long way in helping improve the standard of living
for the children being removed from the streets.
Mulenga said it was good to see Sport-in-Action continue to supplement
the efforts of government in making the lives of the streetkids
“It is indeed a great honour to receive the donation from
Sport-in-Action which has continued to supplements governments effort.
We are happy to receive the 60 mattresses that will be given to the
children we are removing from the streets,” Mulenga said.
He commended SIA and its funders for the works and further appealed to
other organisations and companies to emulate the gesture.
Mulenga said the donated items will help reduce the spread of COVID-19
as they will help a number of children removed from the streets
“This is not the first time we are receiving such a donation from SIA,
I remember receiving 30 mattresses on the Copperbelt last month. To
other companies, emulate what SIA is doing in supplementing
governments’ efforts. We say thanks to you and your partners for this
good gesture,” he said.
And Sport in Action president and founder Clement Chileshe said the
organisation and other partners were happy to join hands in the fight

fight the spread of Covid-19. We hope these mattresses will make a
difference to the children being removed from the street,” Chileshe
