In November 2022, Precious Medical International partnered with Nyasa Big Bullets for a one year partnership with to sponsor a goal of the month at K100,000.
And in its response to the national call for the concerted efforts to fight against continuous spread of cholera outbreak last year, Precious Medical International donated 1,075 bottles of chlorine to pupils at Chitsime Primary School in Ndirande, Blantyre.
The decision by the medical insurance institution to engage the pupils was thought of as an effective means of reaching to as many people as possible through just an hour of the donation of the much-sought ‘liquid gold’ in the fight against the rising cases of cholera.
