A form 4 student at Machinga Community Day Secondary School Aisha Adam has donated her K2 million prize money won in the TNM Ufulu@50 promotion to build a guardian shelter at Machinga Health Centre.
The 19-year old Aisha is one of 50 TNM subscribers that won a total of K100 million Corporate Social Responsibility in the independence commemorative promotion dubbed as Ufulu@50 that TNM conducted from July 6 to August 24, 2014.
Apart from an individual prize money of K100,000 where each of 50 lucky winners got, the winners were also given a chance to choose a community development project of their choice worth K2 million each translating to K100 million.
Speaking during the handover ceremony in Machinga, Aisha said she is always passionate about the health sector.
“I dream to became a medical practitioner so when it comes to issues to do with health am always passionate about it that is why I chose to build this guardian shelter to help pregnant women before delivery,” Aisha said.
In her remarks Machinga District Nursing Officer Gertrude Ngwalo Banda applauded both Adam and TNM for the facility saying it will go a long way in reducing maternal death in the area.
“On average we receive 80 pregnant women in a month, however the challenge was the facility had no any of the waiting shelter which resulted in some cases women delivering on their way here but now they will be coming before labor starts”, Banda said.
Group Village headman Ndaje thanked TNM for the initiative.
“We have seen different company’s conducting promotions but this one is of its kind to me because not only an individual is benefiting but even the community and TNM has demonstrated that they care about customers,” said Ndage.
TNM Head of Southern region Francis Mwamadi said the company will continue fulfilling its promises by giving out what their customers requested.
“We promised during the launch of Ufulu@50 promotion last year that customers who choose projects they require in their communities and TNM today is fulfilling that promises,” Mwamadi said.
