TNM Super League champions Big Bullets on Friday donated an oxygen concentrator and assorted food items worth K1 million to patients at Holy Family Hospital in Phalombe District.
The donation came from TNM, sponsors of the flagship football league.
TNM’s head of region (South) Francis Mwamadi said the donation was made in the spirit of corporate social responsibility.
“In consultation with Bullets, we chose Holy Family Hospital because the champions said they have more fans here. As TNM, we also have many of our customers here as well,” said Mwamadi.
He also said the donation was timely as it came during the festive season.
The People’s Team was given a hearty welcome on arrival by hundreds of overzealous fans.
Bullets vice-captain Sankhani Mkandawire said they were happy to make a donation to the underprivileged.
“It was good to see newly-born babies at the maternity wing and to donate to mothers and expectant women gave us a lot of satisfaction,” said Mkandawire.
The hospital’s acting administrator Ethel Chimaliro thanked Bullets and TNM for what she described as a timely gesture.
“The donation has lessened our challenges and I would like to express my gratitude to Big Bullets and TNM,” said Chimaliro.
