According to the Minister of Health, Malawi record 20 000 new cancer cases every year, saying the donation is “timely.”

She said: “ The quality of the drugs is very good as verified by the Central Medical Stores Trust [CMST].”

Kalilani said the drugs will be stocked in all major public hospitals so that even the poor should access them free.

“We are, therefore, very grateful to the Kuwait Government for this donation,” said Kalilani.

Direct Aid Kuwait director Kunsamala Adin said the donation resulted from a request made by President Peter Mutharika when he visited Kuwait recently.
