In response to recent devastating floods that hit the Lower Shire and some areas, premier telecommunication service provider, TNM today announces the donation of relief food items worth K6.3 million to the floods and hailstorm victims in Phalombe, Chikwawa and Nsanje.
Making the donation, TNM’s Head of Blantyre Region, David Nyirenda said as a responsible corporate citizen the company has decided to join Government to help communities affected by floods.
“TNM today joins Malawians of goodwill to donate relief items to our brothers and sisters who have been affected by the devastating floods that have hit the Lower Shire areas and surrounding districts,” Nyirenda said.
Nyirenda said the company was extremely touched by the dire situation in Malawi following the floods and hailstorms.
“At TNM we are equally concerned with the devastating floods that have left our dear brothers and sister homeless and destitute,” he said.
He reaffirmed the company’s commitment towards assisting the needy people to recover from the effects of floods.
“Our customers are our friends and we are reaching out to them because they have made this brand what it is today and let me assure you that as a local company we will continue to be with you in suffering or joy,” he said.
Receiving the donation Bereu camp chairperson Shandreck Chisoti haled TNM for the timely assistance.
“What TNM has done to us is very commendable; since we camped here this is the first time for each household to receive items. Last time we were given in groups of households as such we had to either share or eat in groups” explained Kasoti.
The distribution exercise has been done jointly with World Vision Malawi who also identified the beneficiaries.
In his remarks World Vision Malawi program manager for Chikwawa district Arnold Tsalayekha said the beneficiaries were identified based on their needs.
“We identified this camp because it has not received support like other camps in the district considering that its new camp and the focus has been always to other old camps”, said Tsalayekha.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
