As way of exercising its corporate social responsibility, a Southern Malawi based media grouping, the Blantyre Press Club, a group which comprises members of media practitioners from the southern region conducted a clean-up exercise at Mangochi District Hospital.
Speaking after the activity, President of the club, Blessings Kanache said journalists like other citizens have great roles to play for their country apart from writing stories.
Kanache called on persons from other professions to emulate what the journalists did in order to build a responsible society.
“We came here just to show that journalists are not only writing and publishing stories but are also ensuring good welfare of citizens,” said Kanache.
On his part, District Nursing Officer for Mangochi Bob Milanzi thanked the scribes for the charitable act.
“We have expressed gratitude for the good job these journalists have done here at our hospital because patient treatment is not all about injections and tablets but also a hygienic environment,” said Milanzi.
The club conducted the exercise prior to its annual general meeting which is underway in Mangochi.
BPC has been doing charitable works since its establishment in 2013. Among other charitable endeavors, BPC has previously donated assorted items to Thyolo District Hospital and Mkakawo orphanage in Balaka. They also raised funds to support victims of floods that hit Malawi earlier this year.
