In an endless commitment to making a positive social impact and joining the fight against Covid-19, MyBucks donated MWK1, 000,000 to Embangweni Mission Hospital, based in one of the most remote rural areas in the country.

Since the outbreak of the COVID pandemic in Malawi, this is the second time the bank is donating towards this cause as in May it donated various Items worth MK2million to Kamuzu central Hospital. Speaking during the function, the MyBucks Small & Medium Enterprise Manager, Lucius Kasakala said “as a responsible corporate citizen, MyBucks deeply understands the negative impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had in the world at large and in our beloved warm heart of Africa with some lives being lost. The bank therefore feels obliged to take a front role in contributing towards the fight of this pandemic. As you are aware just a few months back we donated to KCH as the hospital takes a lot of referrals on Covid-19. This time around we have decided not to give a blind eye to the hospitals that are in the rural and remote areas of the country where a large population of the country’s citizens dwell and also interact with hospital personnel before they are referred to bigger hospitals. It is against that background that today we are donating this MK1 million to Embangweni Hospital via the team that mobilized themselves as “Friends of the hospital”.”

Speaking in her acceptance speech, the Chairperson of the group of Friends of Embangweni Mrs. Estelle Nuka said “the main objective of the group is to mobilize resources in cash and/or in kind with a view to support Embangweni Hospital in its response to COVID-19 and other development projects” Nuka assured the bank that the donation will be used for the intended purpose such as PPEs, isolations tents and other materials to be used at the hospital both by hospital personnel and patients. She thanked MyBucks for this wonderful kind gesture and said “It is my hope and prayer that Friends of Embangweni, Embangweni Mission Hospital as well as those who will benefit from this kind donation will one day surely remember that My Bucks cared during our time of need and promoted us and in return they too will promote the Bank to achieve its success”.
