World Vision Malawi has teamed up with FDH Bank to provide safe water, improved sanitation and good hygienic practices in Chikwina-Mpamba area in Nkhata Bay.
Under the partnership, which was signed over the weekend, FDH Bank has given World Vision about K2.2 million to construct two water points in Chikwina.
Speaking during the cheque presentation ceremony, FDH Bank managing director Jimmy Kayuni said his bank has been a longstanding business partner to World Vision; hence, the partnership.
â€œWhen we were invited to partner World Vision in the Malawi Water Sanitation and Hygiene Project, we did not hesitate to do so,â€ he said.
Kayuni said having access to safe water, improved sanitation and practising good hygiene will help beneficiary families improve their health and also access to education.
On his part, World Vision Malawi national director Marko Ngwenya said that children must enjoy good health that is why World Vision Malawi, through the Chikwina/Mpamba Area Development Project in Nkhata Bay was triggered to the plight of the community through its Southern Africa Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (Wash) programme.
