Lilongwe Asian Business Community furnishes Bwaila Covid-19 isolation centre

But as LABC was officially handing over the equipment to the Lilongwe Director of Health and Social Services, Dr Alinafe Mbewe-Tambala, the chairperson of the Ministerial Committee on COVID-19, Jappie Mhango, was at the Capital Hill where he announced the confirmation of another COVID-19 case in Malawi.

LABC executive member Faizal Abubaker said the donation was in response from the Office of the Office of Director of Health and Social Services, which requested for support from the private sector and people of goodwill to furnish the isolation centre.

“They gave us a small list of the items needs and we mobilized just that and here we are presenting them to them. We have been very quick to respond because we want the hospital to be able to provide ultimate care and support to COVID-19 suspected cases and confirmed patients,” said Abubaker.

He assured that the Community will continue mobilizing more resources for donation to other public health facilities in the country.

“We are gonna try our level best. We have already started pledging a lot of support to many facilities. Even this morning, we were at City Council giving them disinfection materials. Whoever will come to us with a request, we will try to support,” said Abubaker.

In her remarks, Mbewe-Tambala said the donation will go a long way in the provision of care and treatment to COVID-19 patients at the isolation centre.

She said her office was particularly happy that the Lilongwe Asian Business Community has donated the items needed at the centre.

“Before making this donation, they asked us what we would want them to donate. So, we took them to the ward and then we wrote for them a list of the equipment needed and that is exactly what they have delivered. We are very grateful,” said Mbewe-Tambala.

There are currently two COVID-19 patients under quarantine at Bwaila Hospital Isolation Centre, according to Mbewe-Tambala.

There are masks and gloves but no distancing which is more important please,people are quite close to each other, once you have a mask you dont take it off until you are in a safe environment.

I think the only thing we should say is
Thank you
All the rest of the stupid comments only explains one thing

“Those who dont do anything always talk”

M asking u my fellow black malawians
Where r all the other heritage groups that we boast about and are proud of

It’s easier to say and hard to do

So sometimes if we cant give one kwacha
Say thanx to those who can

Period

Enuf.. I have liked the way you have responded to this story. Though I don’t know you by face, but seems you are a mature, smart and intelligent guy. At this difficult moment, we need to be partial and if we are to contribute let us be objective. Above all, where are the so-called heritage groupings, when being formed we are told they will help in the socio-economic development of the country, I feel really this is the right time for them to shine.

This Indians what is wrong with them? Why not say they represent Lilongwe Business Community, why separate themselves as Indian Business Community? These foreigners want to separate themselves from Malawians. They are imposters and exploiters – neo-colonialist who dominate our economy and who send all their money to Dubai and India.

They are not separating themselves…..they are just what they are; Lilongwe Asian Business Community (LABC). They were LABC before they made this donation and they remain such even after making the donation. Just say thank you. We are waiting for your community to respond to this call for help.
