Super League champions Kamuzu Barracks (KB) in partnership with TNM, will today donate K3 million-worth of medical equipment to Dowa District Hospital.
In an interview Thursday, KB chairperson Major Gift Njete said they are excited to be part of the charity works championed by TNM.
“We are very pleased to be part of the charity works carried out by TNM. We thank TNM for recognising and involving KB in this noble gesture where football has been used to support Dowa District Hospital,” said Njete.
He promised that all players and technical officials will make it to Dowa today to support TNM.
TNM senior manager responsible for public relations Akossa Mphepo said this is part of the mobile phone service provider’s corporate social responsibility as they celebrate their 10-year football sponsorship.
“As is the custom, we gave KB the opportunity to select their focus area of choice and they proposed Dowa District Hospital,” said Mphepo.
She further stated that apart from donating medical equipment, the champions will interact with the patients, to give them hope and lift their spirits.
Mphepo commended fans’ support in the past 10 years which has contributed to the improvement of football standards in the country
“I would like to thank the 12th player in the game of football who happens to be the supporter. We have noticed tremendous improvement in the discipline of the fans. Added to that, an increase in revenue collection in the just ended season shows that the games had very good patronage,” she said.
Other health facilities that have benefited from similar donation include Holy Family Mission Hospital in Phalombe and Zomba Central Hospital where 2014 and 2015 champions Nyasa Big Bullets donated medical equipment and other items.
