The National Pension Scheme Authority has promised to continue supporting various vulnerable communities in the country through several corporate social responsibility programmes.
Speaking during a donation of assorted food stuffs and groceries to Cheshire Homes, Matero after Care Centre and Mitanda Old People’s Home in Ndola, NAPSA Director General, Mr. Yollard Kachinda said his organisation will continue complementing government’s efforts in supporting the vulnerable communities.
The assortment of goods and groceries are worth over K100, 000.
Mr. Kachinda who made a donation recently said the contribution is part of the Authority’s Christmas gift to the vulnerable.
“Although NAPSA was created to provide income replacements for workers when they are no longer in employment, management has created a corporate social responsibility policy aimed at supporting the vulnerable in society.Mr. Kachinda explained.
Mr. Yollard Kachinda was represented by NAPS Head Corporate Affairs, Mr. Cephas Sinyangwe.
And receiving the donation, Cheshire Homes Chairperson Joseph Ngoma thanked NAPSA for the gesture which he said will go a long way in meeting the needs of the vulnerable.
And Matero after Care Centre Acting Sister in-charge Elizabeth Walima said the donation is timely and will go a long way in easing the cost of feeding to the vulnerablee at the facility.
Cheshire Homes currently has in its care 31 sick and old people and supports close 100 orphans in Chawama and surrounding communities through school fees, while Matero After Care Centre takes care of 57 old and middle-aged people.
