Due to the recent floods in some parts of the Southern Malawi, NICO has reached out to assist the flood victims with food stuff. As a concerned and responsible corporate entity, NICO believes in making a positive difference to the community, not just in its business offering of financial products but also in situations like these.

Speaking during the handover ceremony of a cheque amounting to 5 million Kwacha to the Mayor of Blantyre City Councilor Wild Ndipo, the Group Managing Director Mr Vizenge Kumwenda said he was saddened and touched by the situation. “I was at home when I saw the news of the floods which damaged houses, fields and property,” he said. “I got in touch with my fellow NICO executives on this and we shared the same sentiments that NICO should help out. Coincidentally the same evening his Worship the Mayor Ndipo called me and asked if NICO could help as the council was overwhelmed with the number of affected victims,” he added.  Receiving the donation on Tuesday 12 March, the Mayor commended NICO for the quick response to their call. “We are grateful to NICO for the timely donation. This donation will go towards procuring of food stuff for the victims as most of them have nothing to eat among the other items needed,” Ndipo said.
