CITI Hope International in collaboration with Carlsberg Malawi on Wednesday donated medical equipment amounting to K58 million to Ekwendeni Mission Hospital in Mzimba District.
Medical equipment donated included a modern scanning machine, groves and theatre chairs.
CITI country director Gabriel Musongole thanked Carlsberg Malawi for helping them transport the medical equipment to the medical facility.
On her part, Carlsberg Malawi Marketing Manager Towera Mnthali said it was her company’s wish to see that patients in the country are receiving quality health care.
Dr. Jessie Chihana who is the in-charge of the hospital said the donation had come at the right time saying the hospital was facing a lot of challenges due to lack of resources.
“We had one scanner unfortunately it was broken due to electricity but the coming of the new scanner at the hospital will help the hospital to work effectively in helping the patients that will need to be scanned,” said Chihana.
Moderator elect of the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia Rev. Gondwe, who was the guest of honor at the function, thanked the Carlsberg Malawi and Citi Hope International for the donation to the hospital saying it was a great opportunity.
Other hospitals that have been benefited from Citi Hope International and Carlsberg Malawi are Queen Elizabeth Central and Zomba Central hospitals.
