Mulhako wa Alhomwe blood donation successful -Ngongoliwa

Traditional Authority (T/A) Ngongoliwa, who is the patron of Mulhako wa Alhomwe, on Saturday led members of this tribal grouping in donating blood to the Malawi Blood Transfusion Service (MBTS), which is mandated to provide adequate supplies of safe blood and blood products to meet the needs of all patients in all hospitals in Malawi.

The group came up with initiative to help fellow Malawians who are suffering and are in need of blood in various hospitals due to various reasons, according to Dickson Makhumba, Blood Donation Task Force spokesperson.

Ngongoliwa hailed the patrons for turning up in large numbers and hoped that they remain blood donors to ensure availability of blood at MBTS.

Blood shortage has a particular impact on women mainly due to complications of pregnancy, children with severe life-threatening anaemia caused by malaria and malnutrition and trauma victims.

Kaombe said, “A significant number of deaths could be avoided ifevery hospital had access to a safe and adequate supply of this lifesavingresource. This can only be achieved through a significant increase in thenumber of people who are willing to donate blood regularly.”

MBTS require at least 80,000 units of blood every year and the institution highly depend on students, especially when schools are in session.

Mulhako Wa Alhomwe was established in 2007 by formerPresident late Bingu wa Mutharika, to revitalize, promote and preserve culture and customs among different tribal groups in the country. And it conducts annual celebrations at its head quarters at Chonde in Mulanje.

    No need to commend this grouping (Malawi’s HAMAS) for organising this event, the grouping has done and brought more evil to the country in the name of promoting culture. After all magazi ambiri amene anaperekedwa pa tsikuli contained the deadly virus. WASTE OF TIME

  2. Muhekete wa Muhekete says:

    DPP young Democrats disguised as Muhlakho wa Ahlomwe! Honesty you needed to wait for Daniel Phiri to form this grouping?? For me Muhlakho wa Ahlomwe is equal to DPP. ANd I have NO regrets about it. DPP and Muhlakho are all legacies of the “Fake” Kangwazi!!!!!

    Mulhako wa Alhomwe is the first cultural grouping to come up with this brilliant idea and needs to be emmulated…to those who are negatively commenting i think its high time to appreciate what your fellow Malawians are doing regardless of where you come from…give a credit to where it deserves. Bravo Mulhako wa Alhomwe!!!

We are coming and rising!

  29. Bondera says:

    Akutitu blood yo inali ndi vitus

  30. Khuth'upa o'Machemba says:

    An enviable initiative, indeed.
    This drive for blood donation must now be turned into an annual event, by Mulhakho, baasi. Even if detractors try to paint a picture of tribalism, for failure to see goodness in anything.

  31. Bwande says:

    Mtundu woipa uwu

  32. john says:

    Someone who works at MBTS told me in confidence kuti all the blood that was donated that day by this group was contaminated with the virus.Eish
