FISD Limited is a major sponsor of the event and has since released K2.5 million which Coordinator of the event, Killy Msukwa, says will be used for prizes.
Msukwa, who is owner of AIA Business Consultancy, told Nyasa Times that he was so delighted and it was a relief on the part of the organisers.
“I am so delighted for the money given to us by FISD Limited. We approached several companies. Some are giving us products but FISD has come out to give us cash. This is 40 percent of our total budget and it will be used for prizes.
“We are ready for the tournament and we just wait for the Volleyball Association of Malawi (VAM) in conjunction with the Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) to give us dates for this big event,” explained Msukwa.
Chief of Drilling and External Operations at FISD Limited, Jack Kujaliwa Junior, told Nyasa Times that FISD is a Malawian company that loves to give back.
“For us, it’s about social corporate responsibility. The volleyball association reached out to us and we felt we could help them.
“Sport is critical for total human well-being. Apart from that, we believe that with good sponsorship, sports will soon become a good capital investment since young people can use it as an alternative economic activity in the face of high unemployment rate in the country,” said Kujaliwa.
