The Malawi-US Education Exchange group on Friday donated K50 000 worth of chairs to the Gogo Chatinkha Maternity Wing at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre.
Chairperson of the group James Kaphale said his committee donated the chairs after a request from the hospital. He said the hospital indicated that it was facing problems with women who give birth through Caesarean section as they sit on the floor.
Principal nursing officer in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at QECH Judith Chirwa thanked the Malawi-US Education Exchange for the donation. In the picture, Kaphale (R) makes a symbolic presentation of the chairs.
