The donation was made at a function which took place on Wednesday at MSB Head Offices in Blantyre in the presence of World Vision Malawi Programme manager Onga Loyce Mkuzi and MSB Chief Executive Officer Ian Bonongwe.

Bonongwe said as MSB, they have a presence in all corners of the country in so doing they felt obliged to respond to the call to action to assist fellow Malawians, who are their customers, brothers and sisters.

“This also follows calls from the State President who on the 13th of January declared a state of National Disaster.  He requested all people of goodwill to support the affected people in the 15 districts of Malawi declared disaster districts,” said Bonongwe.

He went on to state that, “In response to that call, Malawi Savings Bank today presents a cheque of MK5 million to the flood victims, we partner with World Vision Malawi, who already are a strategic partner involved in the relief work.”

He said as “Today’s Peoples Bank”, this response is one of the many corporate social responsibility activities MSB will be involved in this year as Corporate Social Responsibility is a core value they have as a bank.

He also hailed World Vision for letting them be part of the great work they are doing.

World Vision Malawi Programme manager Onga Loyce Mkuzi thanked MSB for what she described as kind gesture.

“We do not take this for granted because for MSB to trust WVI of all thousands of NGO’s in the country is not a joke.  Let us assure MSB that the money donated will be used for intended purposes,” said Mkuzi.

She also urged other companies to emulate MSB example by assisting with more materials towards the flood victims.

“We need every hand so that our fellow countrymen affected can get food, shelter, medicine and even moral support. Let us all share the plight of the people affected by floods,” she said.

Mkuzi said, so far 58,558 household have been affected with the floods in Malawi and that they have already assisted 2000 household.

This bank needs Mk23.5 billion or else liquidate. The CEO pleads for six months grace period before seeing the axe. Finance minister categorically says government has no money to bail out MSB.
