LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Super Sakuwa Steel Limited, the country’s iron sheets manufacture on New Year cheered up mothers with food stuffs and laundry at Area 25 Health Centre in the capital Lilongwe.

The company donated assorted items including food and laundry stuffs worthy MK0.5 million which catered over 50 mothers who have just delivered babies at the facility.
With the geographical coverage of 500,000 people, the health centre delivers 30 babies daily but with insufficient of wards and health personnel.
Speaking after receiving the donation, Nicholas Msiska, Area 24 Health Centre Maternity-In-charge lauded Sakuwa for the timely support.
