Tanzania: Clouds FM Turns 14, Donates to Charity

THE Dar es Salaam-based Clouds FM Radio ended monthly celebrations of its 14th anniversary, with presenters visiting Temeke Hospital and Keko Youth Rehabilitation Centre where they donated various items.

At Temeke hospital, Clouds FM provided various equipment such as gloves, I.V Drips for women and children wards while the Keko Youth Rehabilitation Centre, was provided with a compressor machine.

Speaking at the event, Clouds Media Group Managing Director, Joseph Kusaga said the station has made great strides in its 14 years of existence, reaching more people, championing innovations as well as boosting its broadcasting equipment and content.

He said Clouds FM was now listened to online by overseas audience and that in the next two years it will be covering the entire Tanzania.

Kusaga also spoke about the role Clouds FM has been playing in national development and enhancing patriotism in the country, citing opportunity seminars (Fursa) which went all over the country changing the mindset and motivating youth to take opportunities available in their domiciles.

"Opportunity seminars had great achievements and an important example on how Clouds, as number one radio, uses its power to support development," underscored Kusaga.

A gynaecologist at Temeke Hospital, Dr Muzdalifa Abeid, thanked Clouds Media group for the donation, saying that it will be much helpful to women giving birth. Nurse-in-charge, Ms Margreth Zachariah told the 'Daily News' that 14 babies were born through normal delivery during the New Year celebrations.

She said out of them, five were boys while nine were girls. Youths from Keko Machungwa rehabilitation centre urged the government, stakeholders, NGOs and other good Samaritans to assist them to be self employed and also provide them with food and health services.
