In an effort to foster quality health service delivery in the country, Telekom Networks Malawi (TNM) on Monday donated medical equipment worth K3.5 Million to Malawi Against Physical Disabilities (MAP) – Kachere Rehabilitation Centre in Blantyre.
The donation included stationery bicycles, wheelchairs, examination couches, Treadmills, Blood Pressure (BP) testing machines, laboratory chairs, weighing scales, dump bells, office desks and chairs.
Board Member for TNM Mobile money Trust (popularly known as Mpamba Trust) Reverend Zacc Kawalala said the donation was in appreciation of the work the facility is doing in serving the citizenry through comprehensive medical rehabilitation services, occupational therapy and speech therapy.
“This donation is a fulfilment of the company’s corporate social responsibility. You may wish to know that Mpamba has grown tremendously over the years.
“As a token of appreciation for the support, we are ploughing back to the customers the interest accrued by providing them with essential services,” said Kawalala.
MAP Board member Abudul-Aziz Yasin said the donated equipment will help the centre serve more people at a time.
“This centre provides treatment for people all over Malawi and for us to serve them effectively we need more equipment and we are thankful to TNM for the support,” said Yasin.
Kachere Rehabilitation Centre was established in 1995 to provide intensive care to those suffering from disabling conditions due to accidents, tuberculosis of the spine, malaria, stroke and HIV, among others.
