CDH Investment Bank last week donated K4 million to Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN), a constituent college of the University of Malawi to facilitate online emergency remote learning at the College.
The donation was in response to KCN’s fundraising initiative which aimed at sourcing internet enabled gadgets for needy students to allow them attend classes remotely as the College enforces social distancing learning methods during the Covid-19 pandemic
CDH Investment Bank’s Chief Business Development Officer, Benison Jambo said the support was rendered to help address challenges facing the institution.
“Now more than ever, it is important for health systems and health care organizations to create and ensure an infrastructure and mobilise resources to support effective development of physicians and nurses,” he said.
KCN Vice Principal Belinda Gombachika said the donation was timely as it will remove the digital divide among students and will allow the College to finish the academic year without leaving some students behind.
“The College had managed to use internal resources to provide support to some students but they needed extra support from the private sector to reach out to more,” Gombachika said.
He said it was pleasing to note that CDH Investment Bank decided to invest in the education of our nurses whose role is key to the development of the nation more
Hilda Chinoko, a 3rd year student at KCN Blantyre Campus, expressed gratitude to CDH Investment Bank for the support.
CDH Investment Bank is the first institution to support Kamuzu College of Nursing with the emergency online learning programme that was launched in August 2020.
