Malawi doctors appeal for more Covid-19 support as Kamuzu Academy class of 1993 donates assorted items

Mzuzu-(MaraviPost)—The Society of Medical Doctors (SMD) has appealed to the well-wishers fRom both within and outside the country to support the ailing health system in the face of incessant pandemic of Covid-19.

Speaking at the weekend when the 1993 Class of Kamuzu Academy Allumni was donating assorted items to Kamuzu Central Hospital, President for the Society, Dr Victor Mithi said government is already overstressed with the pandemic as such there is need for alternative ways to help combat the pandemic.

“You know that we can only help people when we have resources. And if government can’t provide enough resources, then we have to look for alternative ways. This doesn’t mean that government is failing, but it’s just the gravity of the situation.

“So, we are very happy that people are still taking it upon themselves to do something little for their country. And this is a very good development and this is the spirit that can take us forward,” explained Dr Mithi.

While concurring with Dr Mithi, Principal Nursing Officer at Kamuzu Central Hospital, Pirirani Kabango, said the donation will ease their work amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Kabango said: “You know as a hospital, we need these things like the wheelchairs, they are going to help us in moving the patients form one Ward to another; as you know these patients when they are put somewhere at isolation, and for them to be taken in the car, we need to wheel them using the wheelchairs.”

In his remarks, the representative of the Alumni, Leo Kasode, said the Alumni thought of donating to the hospital bearing in mind how Covid-19 pandemic is traumatising the nation.

“First it was a call from the director from the hospital of the need for equipment at the hospital and the second one is the Corona Virus. Because of what Coronvirus is doing to the nation and to everyone, we thought we could contribute something,” expressed Kasode.

 In addition to wheelchairs, the Kamuzu Academy Alumni donated to the hospital fifteen glocometers among other items.
