Old Mutual Malawi through its subsidiary, Mthuzi Funeral Services, on Tuesday donated K4 million to Friends of Embangweni for renovation of a mortuary at Embangweni Mission Hospital.
Mthuzi Funeral Service General Manager Onismas Karakadzai said the support is in line with the company’s corporate social responsibility drive.
“This aligns well with our responsible business philosophy where we desire to make a long-lasting positive impact in the communities we are operating in.
“Our contribution today to the renovation of the mortuary only represents the support we have provided in the health sector across the country.” Karakadzai said.
A representative of the Friends of Embangweni Mary Mbewa thanked the firm for the support which she rated as timely.
“We are very grateful for what Old Mutual has done. They also helped us back when Covid-19 was at peak its with cash to buy personal protective equipment. We highly appreciate the continued support,” Mbewa said.
She then called on other stakeholders to come in to support the project estimated at K28 million.
