FMB in blood donation drive


Malawi Stock Exchange listed commercial bank, FMB, on Saturday held a blood donation exercise in partnership with the Malawi Blood Transfusion Services (MBTS) which saw the bank’s staff and other Blantyre residents donating.

The bank organises a blood donation drive every three months in partnership with MBTS.

Head of Marketing at FMB Sylvia Mataka said the initiative was part of the bank’s commitment to create awareness among the public on the need for blood donation.


“This is no longer a question of motivation, it is just a right thing to do,” she said.

Mataka said the perpetual shortage of blood in hospitals could be addressed if players in the corporate world took part in such a drive.

She faulted ignorance and lack of willingness on blood donation among the citizenry for the low supply in the hospitals.


“Every day there is somebody in the hospital getting a blood transfusion. That’s why as an institution we try and do what we can to cover the gap,” she said.
