He said the Bank was proud to help the area become friendly to the needy. He stated the work of renovating the hospital building at the Masoko health center cost Sh 2.5 million.
The centre’s Chief Medical Officer, John Nkuba thanked NMB Bank for its support and said that the medical environment now after the renovation is much better.
Kilwa District Executive Director – Renatus Mchauru, in addition to thanking the donors, urged the staff to ensure that they provide the best possible services based on the image of the existing buildings.
Speaking at the handing over of desks at Kipindimbi Primary School, Shango said they have donated 100 desks for the new students of the school.
The school, which had 100 desks, was overcrowded after an increase in students following the floods that hit schools and residences in Njinjo ward earlier this year. Those schools include Njinjo and Ndende.
The disaster, which affected more than 6,804 people in Njinjo ward, resulted in the increase in number of students at Kipindimbi School from 400 to 909 children and a shortage of more than 100 desks.
In both cases, Shango advised parents to start early in teaching their children to save by opening an account for their children so that they can come and help themselves in the future.
The school’s Headmaster, Bahati said despite the support of the desks, the school is still facing the problem of toilet holes for students and teachers as well as teachers’ houses.
The students of the school Khalid Salim and Neema Ali thanked NMB Bank for supporting with the desks and asked them to help with the toilet facilities.
