Salima, December 15, 2017: As a way of showing appreciation and boosting morale among health workers, the FMB bank has surprised nurses at Salima, Nkhotakota and Mangochi District hospitals with individual Christmas gifts accumulatively valued at K2million.

The gifts were presented on Thursday in separate functions which took place concurrently in the three hospitals.

Speaking after making the presentation, Branch Manager for FMB Salima branch, Boyce Njunga said unlike previous times where on every Christmas the bank takes time to cheer patients in various hospitals, this year they decided to appreciate the role which the nurses play in caring for the sick.

“This year we have decided to change our approach, knowing that the nurses play a vital role in caring for the sick and they deserve some kind of acknowledgement and encouragement that is why we are giving them this Christmas gifts.

“As a bank we believe that the gifts will motivate the nurses to continue doing their good job. We believe that we are here because we have healthy people who are able to undertake some income generating activities and there cannot be healthy people if nurses are not here to deliver health services. Therefore, let’s cheer them and encourage them,” said Njunga.

Speaking on behalf of Salima District Hospital, District Nursing Officer (DNO), Arthur Champiti said it is pleasing that the corporate world acknowledges the important role of health workers especially nurses.

“It is indeed rare to see people especially from the cooperate world come and appreciate the role of health workers in a special way. The gifts that the nurses have received will go a long way to motivate them,” said Champiti.

Champiti said the hospital faces many challenges and appealed to the corporate world and well-wishers to support the institution.
