College of Medicine (Com), a constituent college of the University of Malawi, has organised a fundraising bed race on Sunday in the commercial city of Blantyre on Sunday towards the silver jubilee anniversary to be held in October this year.
Com Assistant Registrar for Administration Martin Matulu said the college would be expecting to raise money from the participating teams.
He said teams to be sponsored by companies are expected to pay K300,000 each to participate in the event.
He appealed to companies and individuals to support the cause as the College has been playing a big role in improving the health sector by training medical doctors and high qualified medical workers.
“College of Medicine is important as far as the training of medical personnel including medical doctors is concerned. So it is important to celebrate the 25 years that the college has contributed to the training of medical personnel not only for the country but also international students,” Matululu said.
The bed race will be held alongside wheelchair race and among high profile guests to the event is the Mayor of the City of Blantyre Noel Chalamanda, who is also a reputable lawyer.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
