Save the Children has commended its Covid-19 response project running in Mwanza, Mulanje, Blantyre and Mangochi districts.
In an interview yesterday, the organisation’s Covid-19 project manager Harrison Sikalamwa said they have improved water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in the four districts.
“The project sought to support government and people to prevent the spread of the pandemic,” he said.
In a separate interview, Kunenekude Health Centre nurse-in-charge Lusubilo Kamphale, in Mwanza, said the facility benefited from the organisation’s interventions.
“Save the Children procured and is in the process of installing a water tank at the facility to enhance hand-washing,” she said.
Kamphale also said nurses and clinicians were trained on how to enforce hygiene practices among people.
The organisation is implementing the European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (Echo) Project in the four districts to reduce the spread of Covid-19 by strengthening health facilities through providing water, sanitation and hygiene facilities and training of health workers.
