Service Touch has donated 25 mattresses worth K1.4 million to Ngabu Secondary School in Chikwawa District to ease problems of limited mattresses at the institution.

The school lost the mattresses in a fire accident earlier this month that left 50 mattresses against a population of 320 students.

Speaking during the handover ceremony recently, Service Touch Chief Consulting Officer Emmanuel Mulele said they believe that giving back to the community is important for development of the country.

“The mattresses may not be enough but we want to make sure that the students have a conducive environment and I have encouraged them to never give up and persevere in difficult times,” Mulele said.

Primary Education Adviser for Chikwawa District Piason Kachingwe said the damage caused by the fire requires more than K8 million to fix.

Member of Parliament for Chikwawa Nkombezi Abida Mia and her counterpart from Chikwawa South Illyias Karim added to the donation some 15 mattresses.

Mia also thanked the company for the gesture.

“We are calling on well-wishers to come in and help us with any donation because we also need equipment for the kitchen, which was also gutted down,” Mia said.
