FDH Bank Neno branch has responded to the needs of Cyclone Freddy survivors by among other things donating food and nonfood relief items.
Presiding over the ceremony over the weekend, the branch manager Nicolas Mondiwa said the gesture is to bail out the customers it serves in the district who are now destitute.
He says that the bank, has made available 992, 5kgs bags of maize flour and 199 pales of 5 Litres of chlorine to help the survivors.
" With this cholera outbreak, we have noticed that most water sources have been contaminated by floods hence the provision of this chlorine and the maize flour to help as food for now," he said.
Mondiwa further called the corporate world to further assist the people, saying restoring their lives is not easy.
" We have come slightly late but not much as the problems are persistent here and we were in other Southern region districts rendering a helping hand to the survivors," he said.
On his part, the Neno District Commissioner, Hudson Kuphanga while thanking the bank for the gesture, says now the focus should be on helping the survivors with resilient building materials.
He said that "we are grateful for this donation and as a council we will make sure that the items reach the right people but we need to focus now on rebuilding," said the DC.
He, however said his office is doing all it can to make sure that the issue of recurrent disasters are dealt with in his district through among other ways, by sensitising the people in prone areas to relocate.
FDH bank on the onset of the devastating cyclone, donated K100 million to the Department of Disaster Management Affairs.
