Rainbow paints through Lilongwe Rotary club has donated assorted paints to Malawi council for the handicapped (MACOHA) in Lilongwe to enable the facility to wear a new face saying the old paint has won out and the structure is in bad shape.
Macoha Campus Rainbow paints technical manager Geoffrey Zuliyani said when they were approached by Lilongwe rotary club they thought it is wise to quickly respond and make the donation saying it was also part of their corporate social responsibility.
Zuliyani said the donation was also aimed at giving back to their valued customers for using rainbow paints products in the past 30 years of their operation.
“We are celebrating 30 years anniversary and we decided to join Lilongwe rotary club in making this donation as a way of appreciating to our valued customers for always being there for us since we started our business in Malawi in 1990. Apart from that, this was also part of our corporate social responsibility,” he said.
After the donation, Malawi council for the handicapped Center Manager McRobert Manjale said the donation was timely.
Manjale said after inspection some years ago, it was recommended that the facility need to be painted white but due to lack of resources they didn’t do that, however, the coming in of Lilongwe Rotary Club and Rainbow Paints was a sigh of relief.
“We are very happy for the donation that this facility has received, we believe that this will uplift the face of this facility,” he said.
Lilongwe Rotary Club Former president Nurul Amin said considering that the facility was initiated by Lilongwe Rotary Club around late 1989’s they are always eager to see the facility in good shape.
Amin said when their project committee visited the facility, they found out that the facility was in a bad state and they had no options but to take an urgent action and engage some stakeholder like Rainbow paints.
However, Amin said as Rotarians, they will keep on helping the facility whenever the need arises.
