Zambia’s favourite Quick Service Restaurant teamed up with Phoenix FM presenter Roxy and Heart of Mercy to donate educational supplies to local schools under the organisation’s wing.

The educational supplies included school bags and water bottles for more than 300 students who are direct beneficiaries of Heart of Mercy’s initiatives that look after orphaned and vulnerable children by providing shelter, food and nutrition, education and godly counsel in Lusaka, Chongwe, Mbala and some parts of the Copperbelt.

Hungry Lion embraces the welfare of children and is committed to supporting causes in all the communities they serve. By joining hands with Heart of Mercy, they were able to provide hope and joy to the children, and support education in Zambia.

“This was a special project for the Hungry Lion team and we were thrilled to get involved,” says Busu Mpepo, Country Manager for Hungry Lion. “As a business, we are committed to skills development and uplifting the communities we serve. We know building a brighter future for Zambia starts with supporting her children”.

And Heart of Mercy’s executive director Reverend Chongo Phiri said that the aim of the organisation is to identify local solutions to challenges faced by different households in supporting vulnerable children

Phoenix FM breakfast show presenter Roxy was moved to collaborate with Hungry Lion as the Covid-19 pandemic has affected vulnerable children the most.

“This gesture is to help parents and guardians prepare for the likelihood of schools opening where they will be under pressure to provide school supplies in what has been a difficult year for many,” she said at the handover.
