The donation is in response to hospital authority recommendation to develop a Dependency Unit in the burns unit so that children who are most vulnerable to burns are taken care in a better environment.

Speaking during the handover ceremony held at Kamuzu Central Hospital, TNM Mpamba Trust Fund Chairman Jabbar Alide said TNM believes in giving back to communities.

“TNM through Mpamba has come here to play our part in helping save life.  As a Malawian company, TNM remains committed to working and assisting the people of the country who are our customers,” Alide said.

Alide said TNM feel obliged to assist government to meet social needs of the public particularly in the health sector

“We feel obliged to play our part in assisting government meet some of the pressing social needs such as health. We are all painfully aware that the Government can’t go it alone to effectively tackle the health challenges facing the nation,” he said.

He disclosed that the equipment has been purchased with the proceeds from TNM’s mobile money service, Mpamba.

“The equipment that TNM is handing over was purchased with proceeds from our mobile money service, Mpamba. In line with our corporate social responsibility, we set what is called the Mpamba Trust Fund. The fund uses interest generated from the money that is kept in our customers’ wallets for corporate social responsibility activities such as this one,”he said

KCH clinician Nelson Msiska described the donation as timely.

“On behalf of the hospital allow me to extend our profound gratitude to TNM  for this donation, this is timely considering that the facility had no equipment to handle cases that require intensive care high dependency and able to save lives of many Malawians,”said Msiska.

The equipment donated includes Multi-functional patient monitors for vital sings, suction machines, oxygen concentrators, ventilator for inhalation burns among others.

    Welkom to Malawi my friends, where 1. Every saloon is a benz
    2. Where every toothpaste is colgate
    3. Where every margarine is Stork
    4. Where every mzungu is rich…

    That’s Malawi…TNM overcharges us much…All these are essentially our money…and zimene apanga donate apapazi ndi peanuts compared ndi zmene amatikawa agalu amenewa

    Well done TNM for donating this equipment which will be used to save lives of many Malawian.

    Zikomo TNM. Apa mwachita zanzeru. Unlike your competitors who shun social responsibility.

  5. Matthew says:

    Well done TNM. I believe, this just the beginning of it all. Adding to what you have done for example, you may also open your eyes to the rural masses who, roughly, constitute the larger proportion of customers who partronise the network since you have said well that it’s a network that gives back to the customers.

    Mobile Companies are a joke, you are busy making donations but you are failing to pay your suppliers in time? Shame on you!

    1. Mark says:

      This is charity towards mankind and we need to appreciate what TNM has done. If suppliers are not being paid on time, they need to discuss with Mobile companies and go through the contract documents. Surely you may find a solution that is good for both sides. It’s no good just blaming them like that.

  12. This is good development and other companies should emulate this, it is said that blessed is the hand that giveth than the one that taketh

  13. GUSHESHE says:

    thats gud, big up to tnm

  14. dreda says:

    Money put to good use than aiding non firing bullets

  15. ccc says:

    bravo tnm, u r indeed a malawian company.

  16. Tiyende Ndawala says:

    This is wealthy commending keep it up TNM

  17. brutsha says:

    This is a good move. However, much as we salute TNM for the good gesture, the tendency of labeling the unit with their brand smacks more of marketing strategy than philanthropy. It would make more sense to put that TNM label if there was long term partnership between the unit and TNM. We had a similar arrangement at QECH burns unit with Stagecoach years back. Based on the article here I think the donation TNM has made is just one time thing then why that marketing gimmick on the door? All the same, thank you TNM.
    Thats my take!
