Mw, Partners Launch Multi-Donor Trust Fund

The government of Malawi has signed several agreements with the donor community and launched the Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) that seeks to enhance social support programmes in the country.

The ceremony took place at Capital Hill in Lilongwe.

Minister of Finance, Sosten Gwengwe, on behalf of the Government of Malawi signed the MDTF for Social Protection Agreements whereas Hugh Riddell, represented the World Bank during the ceremony.

In his remarks, the United States Ambassador, David Young, applauded the partners for mobilising resources that will have a tremendous impact on ordinary citizens in Malawi.

“The USA Government has already invested K12 billion that goes into strengthening social protection programmes in Malawi and will keep up on that path,” said Young.
