K-2 Transformers committee for Malawi’s transformative Para-athletes

By Edwin Mbewe

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-In a significant move, the K-2 Transformers company, owned by Koreans in the capital Lilongwe and the official sponsors of the Malawi Paralympic Committee, has pledged to transform and elevate the fundamental situation of Para-athletes in the country.

The commitment was reiterated by the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Taeyoung Kim, during the handover ceremony of the training center and office to the Malawi Paralympic Committee in Area 10 on Sunday.

Kim expressed his satisfaction, stating, “We are delighted to be an official sponsor of MPC. It was not an easy journey, but it became possible because our stakeholders demonstrated sincerity and honesty. Though it’s a modest start, I believe in our collective will and future impact.

“Beyond mere economic support, I aim to reshape the fundamental situation of Para-athletes in the long run.”

Highlighting the transformative power of Para-sport, Kim shared a poignant perspective from South Korea’s financial crisis in 1997.

“When faced with desperation, the Korean people found hope and comfort in Para-sport. Witnessing the dramatic victories, they realized that challenging circumstances could change through perseverance and a positive focus.

I believe the training center we are handing over today will turn dreams into reality for the athletes and contribute to making Malawi a better place, echoing positive change globally,” adds Kim.

James Chiutsi, President of the Malawi Paralympic Committee, expressed his overwhelming gratitude for the newfound home.

“Six months ago, we shared our vision with K-2 Transformers, emphasizing the need for a training center. Today, we are elated to have a facility conducive to our athletes with disabilities.

“This achievement eliminates excuses for our performance and provides athletes with proper training, accommodation, nutritious food, and safeguarding measures,” says Chiutsi.

Charles Ulaya Banda, Vice Chairperson of the Malawi National Council of Sport, commended the facility as a significant milestone and urged all sports associations to have tangible offices for effective collaboration with sponsors.

The training center and office, built with an investment of MK21 million, coupled with an annual commitment of MK10 million from K-2 Transformers to MPC for three years, mark a transformative step in the journey to empower and support Para-athletes in Malawi.
