Malawi Stock Exchange listed National Bank of Malawi (NBM) on Friday donated K8 million towards refurbishment of the TB Ward at the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre.
Making the donation, NBM Chief Executive Officer, MacFussy Kawawa, said that the donation aims to help TB patients live in a good environment.
“We want to improve the welfare of the patients. We made a similar donation in 2011 and when the management wrote us a proposal again for financial support, we did not hesitate to assist,” he said.
In his remarks, QECH Chief Hospital Administrator, Themba Mhango, hailed NBM for the donation. He said the hospital will now be able to use the money for repairs.
“We appreciate NBM for coming to our rescue again so that we do maintenance works. As a matter of fact, the ward is also used by students from College of Medicine and Malawi College of Health Sciences for academic purposes,” he said.
