MANZINI – The Swazi telecom Charity Cup Trust Fund yesterday distributed a sum of close to E0.9 million to seven charity organisations.


The exact amount distributed was E859 700. The event took place during the 2018 Swazi Telecom Charity Cup launch at Mavuso Sports and Exhibition Centre in Manzini yesterday. The beneficiaries included Lihle Lemaswati, Hospice at Home, Hope House, The Rocking Horse, Cheshire Homes, Ntontozi Soup Kitchen, and the Ministry of Health.


SPTC’s Managing Director Petros Dlamini said they were proud to be distributing these funds to the different charities as a result of the success of the 2017 Charity Cup. “We are very happy to be handing out the cheque to our partners of the Charity Cup, the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The stadium was full to capacity last year and this is one of the reasons we sponsor football, to succeed in income generation,” he said.


Dlamini thanked the National Football Association of Swaziland (NFAS)’s president Adam ‘Bomber’ Mthethwa for being a good Chairman of the Trust Fund. He also thanked the Premier League of Swaziland (PLS) for managing the fund well.


The MD added that through the Trust Fund, they had been able to undertake a number of key projects in different communities, including the rehabilitation of the male ward at the Mbabane Government hospital, and providing a telemedicine platform by using high speed broadband connectivity to three important health centres in the country.


“These are Hlathikhulu hospital, Matsanjeni Clinic, and the Mbabane Government hospital. This year the plan is to connect the most remote and most rural areas to the Mbabane Referral hospital. These centres include Sithobela Clinic,” he said.
