Minister of Health Khumbize Chiponda Kandodo speaking after receiving the donation in Blantyre, commended National Bank, and urged other institutions to emulate.
Chiponda accompanied by another member of COVID- 19 task force Minister of Information Gospel Kazako said the donation will go along way in fighting the pandemic in Malawi.
