CHIKWAWA (MaraviPost): A historical day was witnessed as an initiative which brought together citizens associated with Chikwawa in various ways climaxed in the handover of gas cylinders at Chikwawa District Hospital

The Initiative dates back from 23rd January 2021 when a  call for support towards the Pandemic was made by the Coordinator of Nsanje Chikwawa Development group Mr King Rudi

According to the organizers,  5 categories of  Citizens made contributions- Those whose home district is. Chikwawa or have Settled, doing business connection with Chikwawa, working in various organizations in Chikwawa but from different districts and Well-wishers.

What is more pleasing is that they are from within Malawi and all over the Globe including  United Kingdom ,USA, South Africa, and Kenya among many others? Patriotic people who still are connected to their roots in Malawi.

Besides Leaders MPs ,Chiefs, and  Deputy Minister Abida Mia took an active part in raising funds for the equipment.

There was Overwhelming response .Total pledge is K2.6 million received k2.4 million and cost of the cylinders k2.5 million. We still appeal for more contributions as the needs are many in the health sector.

To my knowledge, this is the first time we have come together in unison. A noble gesture to be continued if CHIKWAWA can develop said Ellos Lodzeni.

It is our plan that the Grouping should continue to support and advocate on Health issues in the District when need arises whether there is Covid or no covid. It will be a good platform for providing complementary support to the Health system in the District.

Today’s function symbolic but gives a message that together we can do it and walk miles to improve our Health situation in Chikwawa. We therefore appeal to citizens to continue patronizing this group and for those that are hearing it for the first time to join and actively contribute towards building a better health system in Chikwawa.

Though cases are declining Chikwawa almost Zero at the Kasinthula isolation centre the gift has raised the level of preparedness by the District. In addition, you can share with Community hospital or Health centre.

The Gas can be used for other Patients who have other critical elements.

We are hearing of third wave hence Donation is relevant and timely. Indeed It is a worthwhile cause.

Finally thank Hospital management of Chikwawa hospital for agreeing to hold the function.
