Invest in Knowledge research institution on Tuesday donated drugs and medical equipment worth K2 million to Mhuju Health Centre in Traditional Authority (T/ A) Mwahenga in Rumphi District.
The equipment included gloves, wheelchair and laparotomy gadgets.
Speaking during the handover ceremony at the health centre, Invest in Knowledge research director James Mkandawire said the donation marked the launch of initiatives his institution has lined up for health centres across the country.
He said government alone cannot meet medical requirements of all health centres nationwide, hence, their coming in to help.
Said Mkandawire: “The donation is part of our efforts to improve service delivery in our hospitals. We aim to give life to our people so that they should continue participating in the development of the country.”
In her remarks, Rumphi district health officer Mirriam Mkandawire thanked Invest in Knowledge for the support, saying the facility needs enough drugs and equipment as it serves a big population.
She said: “This is a great relief to our drug budget; we thank you for the support.”
T/A Mwahenga asked Mhuju Health Centre officials to use the donation for its intended purpose. n
