The donation, which was presented by Petroleum Importers Limited general manager Enwell Kadango took place on Friday at Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre.

Petroleum boss said they feel duty bound to assist the families affected and they know many others are helping in one or another.

Kadango, who thanked government for its coordination efforts in this cause to assist the people affected in various areas of the country, said they thought it wise to respond to the call by the State President in donating materials which will assist those people affected by the floods.

“We are all aware that the government of Malawi recently declared Malawi as a state of national disaster due to flooding that has affected 15 districts in the country. This has happened due to persistent heavy rains that have fallen in these areas which are traditionally prone to flooding,” he said.

He said the magnitude of flooding has been so huge such that many families have been affected losing their loved one as well as property.

This is a private company that imports fuel for Malawi from the international market through Beira, Nacala and Dar es salaam.

The company has been operation since 2000 and imports well over 90 per cent of the fuel used in Malawi and is owned by the major oil marketing companies namely Puma Energy, Total Malawi, Petroda and Engen Malawi.

In his remarks, World Vision Malawi Country Director Robert Kisyula described the donation as timely stressing it will assist many families who are in dire need of  materials like blankets, food and tents.

Kisyula also hailed Petroleum Importers Limited for the donation and urged other companies to emulate their example.

“This marks the beginning of a long partnership between Petroleum Importers and World Vision. I urge other companies to follow suit because we have thousands of people who have been affected by these floods,” said Kisyula.

Thank you PIL, you have a good management team. Where are the banks and other corporate companies that just know how to publish profits and does know how to donate. These other companies need to learn from PIL. FMB,Standard bank, National Bank, Reserve Bank, Insurance companies, please share the profits with the needy ones. Good job PIL! I am sure others will learn from you.
