Ecobank fulfills K100 million survivors’ relief pledge


Ecobank has fulfilled its commitment on a K100 million relief package in response to Cyclone Freddy.

The bank has since distributed 37.5 metric tonnes of maize flour, 12.5 metric tonnes of beans, soya pieces, sugar, salt, cooking oil, soap, plastic buckets, plates, cups and blankets to 1,500 households in Phalombe and Mulanje.

All items were procured by Ecobank with guidance from the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (Dodma).


Speaking during the handover ceremony, Ecobank Malawi Head of Human Resources Frank Sabola said the support is in line with its pan-African mission of supporting the communities

“We believe that this will go a long way in uplifting and rebuilding these households and also complementing the government’s efforts during this crisis,” Sabola said.

Dodma Director of Preparedness and Response Moses Chimphepo thanked Ecobank for fulfilling its commitment.


“We, therefore, would like to re-assure the general public that we will relentlessly work towards channeling all assistance received from corporate bodies like Ecobank towards the intended purpose, thus, in this case, giving first line relief items to households that have been displaced during this crisis,” Chimphepo said.
