NB plc donates medical items to Nancholi youth NGO
National Bank of Malawi plc on Wednesday donated assorted medical items to Nanchili Youth Organization ( NAYO) at the organization's clinic in Blantyre.
MALAWI: As part of celebrating day three of the twelve days of Christmas, one of the country's leading banks, National Bank of Malawi plc, on Wednesday donated assorted medical items to Nanchili Youth Organization ( NAYO) at the organization's clinic in Blantyre.
The items include Amoxicillin, Panado, Mosquito Nets, Masks, Omeprazole, Lodine, and Weighing Scales.
Speaking when handing over the donation, Henderson Street Service Centre Manager Tamara Mtuwa said the donation was part of giving back to the community as well as celebrating the twelve days of Christmas with youths who are serving the lives of many through Nancholi Youth Organization clinic.
She said NB has been working together with NAYO for a long time and after the organization's call to assist them with the items, they thought it wise to reach out and help just as they have been doing.
“Today we are here at Nancholi Youth Organization, donating these medical items as part of celebrating the Christmas days together with the youths. We also received a call that the organization is lacking the items, hence the donation. We have been working with NAYO for a quiet some and we have been following up their good works to the community, another reason why we are here today donating the items. We hope that these items will help people around here in Nancholi who access their medical help at Nancholi Youth Organization Clinic," said Mtuwa.
The organization's Communications and Public Relations Manager Chifuniro Masamba thanked NB for the donation, saying for a long time they have been relying on well-wishers who help them with donations for them to operate without challenges.
He said as a youth organization, they believe in providing friendly health services to the youths so as they grow healthy and contribute more towards the social-economic development of the country.
“As an organization, we are very thankful to NB for the donation as we will now be able to provide our services to our fellow youths without challenges. As a small organization, we have been relying on well-wishers like a national bank to serve people around Nancholi and beyond,” he said.
Masamba then called on other stakeholders, well-wishers and the cooperates to emulate what National Bank is doing in the communities.
He said the government is doing enough to help the communities but still needs extra help from the well-wishers and the stakeholders.
“The government is doing its best but my call is to cooperate bodies. They should go back to the communities they are saving and help because these are the people who are making their profits for them to grow. If we are to develop the country, we have to develop people and make Malawi a healthy nation,” he said.
Nancholi Youth Organization is a registered Youth Organization with the National Youth of Council.
