Mlambe Hospital in Blantyre has received medical equipment worth K2 million from the winner of Telekom Networks Malawi’s (TNM) [email protected] Promotion, Maria Kasonde.
Twenty-three year-old Kasonde, who hails from Lunzu, is among 50 TNM customers that won a total of K100 million the promotion the mobile service provider conducted in 2014 as part of the country’s 50 years of independence celebrations.
Each winner was asked to choose a social responsibility project of their choice worth K2 million, translating to K100 million.
Kasonde chose to buy K2 million worth of medical equipment comprising two theatre beds to help improve levels of service delivery at the hospital main theatre.
She hailed TNM for the initiative, observing that many will benefit from various social responsibility projects winners chose in their areas.
She hoped that the new equipment at the hospital will help reduce pressure on public medical facilities like Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital.
“On behalf of people from this community, let me commend TNM for this initiative which has not only benefit individuals but even the communities,” she said.
Board chairperson of the Board of Governors Elias Kambalame hailed TNM for the donation saying it will go a long way in assisting critical patients.
