Centenary Bank has supported Pediatrics Trust with K2 million to help enhance provision of assistance to children in need of pediatric treatment.

Speaking during the cheque donation in Blantyre on Friday, Centenary Bank Head of Retail Banking, Mayamiko Kalizang’oma, said his Bank decided to provide the support to the Trust as its work complements the Bank’s commitment and mission.

“Centenary Bank is honored to give support towards the Trust, a cause that is close to our hearts and aligns with our commitment to supporting the well-being of our community’s most vulnerable members especially children.

“The vision of Pediatrics Trust is in line with our mission of transforming lives through inclusive, convenient, simplified and sustainable financial solutions,” Kalizang’oma said.

He added that the donation signifies the Bank’s steadfast dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of children in need.

Kalizang’oma said every child deserves access to quality healthcare and support, and through the contribution to the Trust the Bank is taking a meaningful step towards ensuring that its vision becomes a reality.

He said the support to the Trust was made to reflect on the Bank’s core values on corporate social responsibility as they believe in giving back to the community and supporting causes that create a lasting impact.

“As a bank, we are committed to standing with Pediatrics Trust in their mission to provide essential care and resources to children in need of pediatric treatment,” he said.

He, therefore, urged other organisations in the country to join hands with the Trust to support in uplifting and transforming children’s lives.

Pediatrics Trust Administrator, Venancio Kapalamula, appreciated Centenary Bank for the support.

“Our hospital provides surgical services for children and we operate children from all over Malawi among other pediatric treatments and our goal is to provide free services as such we reach out to partners for help.

“For this reason we reached out to Centenary Bank and they responded. The donation will go towards the purchase of medical supplies,” Kapalamula said.

Pediatrics Trust was established in 2017 and has a clinic located at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Blantyre which conducts over 1,000 operations among children per month.
