Kachere Rehabilitation Centre in Blantyre has appealed to well-wishers for an ambulance after the one they had was badly damaged in a road accident in Thyolo.
The development has crippled the centre’s operations since October 8 this year.
The centre’s chief executive officer Dr. Sydney Ndembe said in an interview yesterday the absence of an ambulance has made it difficult for the centre to carry out its operations.
He said: “The only ambulance we had overturned on the Thyolo-Makwasa Road and it is a complete wreck with no possibility of having it back on the road. The vehicle would carry patients to and from hospitals in times of need and also when we needed to purchase food and other items for the centre.”
Ndembe, therefore, appealed to well-wishers to rescue the centre by donating an ambulance or any other utility vehicle which could be used as an ambulance.
Kachere Rehabilitation Centre is the only rehabilitation facility in the country providing physiotherapy to patients with various conditions such as stroke, arthritis and back pain. n
