In a bid to support Government’s call for assistance towards relief to victims of Cyclone Ana, NICO Group has, through World Vision, donated MK27 Million to victims in Chikwawa District.
Chikwawa was hit the hardest as over 84 thousand households in Chikwawa were affected by the tropical storm.
NICO Group is a leading organization in Malawi and has been at the forefront of responding to Government’s calls for assistance when there are natural disasters or state of emergencies in Malawi.
NICO Group Managing Director, Vizenge Kumwenda, said the group will continue playing its role in reaching out to the communities in the countries it operates in.
“We have been operating in Malawi for over 50 years and such disasters affect us too as a corporate citizen. It is only right that we assist as many of our fellow citizens as we can,” Kumwenda said.
He also called on other corporates and individuals of goodwill to assist victims of the storm in any way possible.
“It is pleasing to see various corporates and individuals come together to assist victims of cyclone. This is in line with our philosophy that we are stronger together. I call on more of this togetherness so that we reach more people,” he added.
The MK27 million will assist 1,000 household with food packs and domestic utensils.
NICO Group’s partnership with World Vision is not new as NICO, with support by Sanlam, also joined hands to aide victims of Cyclone Idai in 2018.
The NICO Group is committed to assisting efforts and initiatives that aid Malawians to attain better living standards.
