Precision Air donates food to Kyela flood victims


Precision Air, has presented three tonnes of food and cooking oil to flood victims in Kyela District, Mbeya Region, who suffered floods following the ongoing rains that left more than 3,983 families stranded.

Precision Air marketing coordinator Hillary Mremi (L) hands over
 to Kyela MP Dr Harrison Mwakyembe's secretary, Salum Kambi,
the consignment of relief food donated Kyela flood victims.

Precision Air Brand and Marketing Coordinator Hillary Mremi represented the airline’s Managing Director and CEO, Sauda Rajab, in handing over the donation to the Kyela office of Transport minister Dr Harrison Mwakyembe – who doubles as Kyela Member of Parliament. 


Apart from three tonnes of food, which comprised one tone each of maize flour, rice and beans, the consignment had 312 litres of cooking oil. Tanzania’s leading domestic airline also offered to transport to Mbeya various other donations collected from good Samaritans within Precision Air network across Tanzania.


In her remarks, MD and CEO Rajab said: “Care for society is one of the airline’s core values and the company feels obliged to help Kyela residents during these tough times.”


“Our famous slogans – ‘YOU ARE WHY WE FLY’ – means that society is the reason we fly, so if our society is suffering it’s obvious that we cannot continue to fly,” she noted, adding: “We operate daily flights to Mbeya, and Kyela residents are indeed our partners in business so we cannot keep quiet and pretend nothing has happened.”


Representing Kyela residents, Dr Mwakyembe said Precision Air had set an example for other companies and stakeholders. He appealed for more donations to support the families now under distress after losing their homes and an assortment of other earthly property.


“On behalf of Kyela people I want to extend our gratitude to Precision Air for being there when we needed them the most. I am encouraged to know that, apart from doing business, they are concerned about the well being of society and this proves that they are truly a Tanzanian company.”


Last week the minister appealed for donation to help the Kyela flood victims, who are sheltered in 14 camps. It is reported that the region has not experienced a similarly devastating incident for the past 60 years.


Precision Air has Dar es Salaam as its main hub and operates daily flights to several domestic and regional destinations, including Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Mtwara, Mbeya, Mwanza, Bukoba, Zanzibar, Nairobi and Hahaya in the Comoros.
