Water and soft drinks donation to aid hospitals

Malawi – Hospitals in Malawi’s worst-hit cities in the current Cholera outbreak – Blantyre and Lilongwe – have received relief for patients in the form of soft-drinks and water donated by Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) in Malawi.

Ensuring adequate and safe hydration is a major concern during outbreaks of Cholera and the handover of the bottled water and soft drink products is intended to help alleviate pressure on the hospitals.

CCBA handed over a total of more than 1,300 cases of 2L Coke and 500 cases of Quench bottled water to District Health Officers Dr Gift Kawalazira in Blantyre and Dr Wilson Ching’ani in Lilongwe.

CCBA in Malawi general manager, Seutloadi Thaanyane, said: “Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this Cholera outbreak.

“The donation is in line with the company’s purpose to refresh Africa every day and make the continent a better place for all.

“We use our industry leadership to be part of the solution to achieve positive change in the world and to build a more sustainable future.

“Our aim is to create greater shared opportunity for the business and the communities we serve across the value-chain.

“People matter. We believe in doing business the right way by following our values and working toward solutions that benefit us all. Profitability is important, but not at any cost.

“When we grow our business the right way, not just the easy way, we help create inclusive growth opportunities for our communities, our customers, our employees and our shareholders, for a better shared future,” said Thaanyane.
