Mwambande donate maize and fuel to Karonga Hospital

Karonga Hospital is scaling down most of its operations as it is still running without government fund since June 2015 a development which led the officials to suspend providing food to admitted patients and taking referral cases.

Mwambande donation follows the statement announced by the District Heath Advisory Committee (HAC) through the local radio informing the general public in the district that the hospital officials will not take part in managing the resources which will be contributed by the community who earlier denied issuing their support fearing that the staff will misuse their resources.

Speaking during the donation, the Managing Director of Mwambande investment Mungasulwa Mwambande said he is concerned with the current situation at the hospital which he described as a “threat to the patients lives.”

Mwambande his donations is part of the company’s social responsibility to the community.

“As a business entity which operates here in Karonga I am very much concerned with the situation which our friends who need medical attention are experiencing at the hospital,” he said.

He then asked other business operators in the district to support the hospital.

    Have You donated even one bag whether generously or politically, Just appreciate the gesture.

  2. Mwachimbuli Bamasemi says:

    A good gesture of kindness in these hard times. He could have made millions if he had sold the maize on the black market thriving across the border. The fact that he decided to donate to a worthwhile cause is worth emulating. Kalya akufye naloli.

    Congratulations Mr. Mwambande. The Hospital appealed and you responded, that is very good. For those who don’t know this guy has been helping and I remember even before the last elections he built the Road that is just few kilometers from Karonga as we go to the boarder. This gentleman has the heart to help, may God bless you. Its very easy to talk nonsense when others have donated…

    What a show! So many rich people donate to orphanages and hospitals in Malawi and i know one is my employer, Ketan Kotecha of Arkay Plastics who has done that many many times and not just with food but with non-perishable treasurable assets like furniture, blankets, and many other forms of hospital equipment. But you will never see such people invite the media for a “show-off ” political stunt like this guy above. This is pure PR and political posturing. God does not bless such actions because they have a political motive behind.

    Asatinamize uyu, akufuna kudzakhala eMuPi! If he is sincere why not donate some of the bags to Ekwendeni Hospital?

  8. Kyala akutule we mwambande! Wabapoka banthu ku imfwa. kikolo kiwale, inselo sisule ni hela, amaghali ghapapane khati mbwele sha kwa kibwe.

    May be, as a general policy, govt shud adopt a one meal a day. And this meal shud be phala ku mmawa. Relatives and guardians of the sick must take greater responsibility than leaving everything in the hands of govt. The hospital can take care of referred patients and other vulnerables such as infants. Let hospitals concentrate on their core values and that is prescriptions, medicines, surgery, xray, etc. Apa boma laonesa kale kuti lalephera kudyesa odwala. Chasala nkukhazikisa new policy for way forward

  12. INVESTIGATOR says:

    MWAMBANDE MAY GOD BLESS YOU. I AM HAPPY THE WAY HAC HAS SET GUIDELINES OF HANDLING SUCH DONATIONS. THE KA COMMUNITY HAS LOST TRUST OF THE PRESENT MANAGEMENT TEAM MORE ESPECIALLY THE DHO (DR SUNGANI) ADMINISTRATOR ( MR CHILOMBO) OF ABUSE & PLUNDER OF RESOURCES. THEY DO THIS BECOZ THEY HAVE BACKING AT Hq’s. THESE OFFICERS ARE TOO CORRUPT & ARE A BURDEN. KA PEOPLE GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOU LOVE TO SAVE UR PEOPLE.

  13. chimboro says:

    It is total unthinkable to donate maize to the hospital because the sick themselves can be asked to contribute as they do when they camp at witch doctor”s compound.Let us not just make noise on this simple problem that can be solved permanently.Just ask all the sick to bring a bucket full of maize as part of his food that would have been consumed at his home.Vuna timapereka bwanji.Let us contribute fuel and equipment .Ku shelter kuphika thoo,zakudya zolowa zili mbwee.
