The Vice Presidents wife said it was only through access to professional medical services that maternal deaths could be reduced.
“We all have hope that you will make it because you rushed here at the hospital. This is what we should be encouraging all our friends in our communities to reduce the risk of loosing mothers and children,” said Mrs Kachali.
She said Women should be a priority of wellwishers especially during the festivity period as their admission into hospital affects the well being of homes.
One of the patients Enelesi Phiri thanked Mrs Kachali for the gesture saying the assorted items that included soap,rice, sugar, matches and energy biscuits will ease part of their daily challenges.

The Vice President said Malawians need to support President Joyce Bandas economically by becoming productive in their farms that it can be exported.
