Operations manager Dr Ezekiel Mtonga said the donated materials will be distributed in Chipata, Kasenengwa and Chipangali districts.
Among the donated materials are water tanks, infra-red thermometers, soaps and sanitizers.
Mtonga said his organization had decided to supplement government efforts in the fight against covid-19.
He said JTI adhered to health guidelines during the tobacco marketing as prescribed by government.
Meanwhile Chipata Mayor Sinoya Mwale said the gesture by JTI was a good corporate social responsibility.
Mwale appealed to other companies to emulate the gesture by JTI.
This is the biggest donation made by a single organization towards the fight against Covid-19 in Eastern Province.
