She also requested the donors to look at building a shelter for discharged patients and also for some upkeep of the orthopaedic treatment room.
On behalf of the business community Razak Kassam assured of more support , saying they are willing to assist the underprivileged and always forthcoming to give back something to the people of Malawi.
In the past the community has come forward on so many times to assist but have not felt the need to publicise but now that mindset needs to change so other communities and organisations can also come forward to contribute to the plight of our underprivileged brothers and sisters.
“We hope this is just a start and we pray for continuity of such contributions,” Kassam said.
