Nyasa Big Bullets on Sunday donated 40 000 face masks worth K20 million to Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) in Lilongwe to help in the fight against Covid-19.
For the past three years, the People’s Team has been doing charity works before the start of the new season under the auspices of club owners, Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC), as part of its corporate social responsibility.
Bullets director Fleetwood Haiya, who is also NMC managing director, said the board this year decided to reach out to the referral hospital as one way of helping to fight against the pandemic.
He said: “First of all, let me appreciate the board of Nyasa Manufacturing Company for their support for charity programmes.
“As a company, we have also been affected by this pandemic, but we thought it wise to reach out to the Kamuzu Central Hospital as one way of appreciating the good work that our health personnel is doing in the fight against the virus.”
KCH principal nursing officer Christina Chimenya thanked Bullets and NMC for what she described as a timely donation.
She said: “We would like to express our appreciation for the donation by Nyasa Big Bullets.
“It’s a huge gesture towards the fight against the pandemic.
“The battle is far from over, but it’s always a relief for us when well-wishers come forward to assist with whatever they have to help fight the pandemic.
