ABN – Leading mobile company Airtel Malawi has invested K3 million (US$6,874) in the renovation of the Kasungu district hospital’s paediatric ward.
It is hoped that the renovation will bring hope and confidence to patients and instil vibrancy in the children.
Airtel Zone Business Manager Peter Tengatenga said: "We decided to repaint and renovate the children's ward to give it a fresh look by fixing its doors, locks and other amenities.
“In addition to that, we have also brought some children's ward utensils like toys, books, plastic buckets, soap and mosquito nets."
Kasungu District Health Officer Dr. Jeromy Nkhambule added: "This hospital was constructed in 1967 and to maintain and rehabilitate it is very expensive.
“We therefore commend Airtel for taking part in addressing one of the challenges that we have been facing."
