Islamic Relief Malawi donates Pharmaceutical supplies worth K10 million to Health Ministry

LILONGWE (MANA) The Islamic relief Organisation has donated Pharmaceutical Supplies to the Ministry of Health (MoH) worth K10 million (US$25,000) to be utilized at Machinga District Hospital and Zomba Central Hospital.

The Donation took place at Kanengo Medical Stores in Lilongwe on Thursday with the Minister of Health, Dr Jean Kalilani receiving the medical consignments.

Among the medical supplies that have been donated are Multivitamins, Potasium Chloride, Shringes and Needles, Nystatin and Declofenac Sodium.

In her speech Dr Kalilani described the donation as timely considering the fact that the country has been going through drug crises.

She said the donation will greatly improve the health services in the country as the country has increasing demand of medical supplies which government alone cannot manage.

“Most of the items that have been donated here will be utilized at Machinga District Hospital and Zomba Central Hospital both at Primary and Secondary level as referral hospitals, they deserve to have medical supplies in full stock as they receive difficult cases,” she said.

She added that the MoH will create an environment for optimum operations for everyone who wishes to donate to the Ministry.

Head of Programmes for Islamic Relief Malawi, Sharif Mia said the donation came about after recognizing the shortfall of medicines in Malawians hospitals.

She said that Machinga and Zomba have been chosen because there are programmes that are running under the Islamic Relief.

In his remarks, Chief Executive Officer for Medical Stores Trust, Feston Kaupa commended government for transforming the Central Medical Stores into a public trust which has minimized cases of theft.

He however asked government to support the construction of the New Warehouse as currently the Kanengo warehouse which is a transit place for all medicines being bought from outside or donated before being transported to Regional deports as it is currently hosted in a rented property.

The Donation has been made possible by the Islamic Relief USA which is an international humanitarian organisation found in over 40 countries with the aim of fighting poverty.
