MCP youth wing cheer patients at Mangochi District Hospital

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Youth Wing and born free women in Mangochi on Wednesday donated food and non-food items, which includes rice, sugar and soap, to patients at Mangochi District Hospital.

Speaking after making the donation, MCP Director of Youth in Mangochi, Isaac Adani, said they decided to cheer up patients, especially children admitted to the pediatric ward, to show how responsible the youths are in caring for patients.

Adani said MCP empowers youth in the country to be good citizens by playing significant roles in the society.

“In most cases, youths are regarded as agents of violence but we, in MCP, are always trained to be responsible. We are encouraged to contribute towards improving livelihoods of people in our society.

“As such, we decided to cheer patients at Mangochi District Hospital to help in bring hope amongst those in hospitals said Adani.

In-Charge for Mangochi Hospital Paediatric Ward, Blessings Juma, commended MCP youth and born free women for the gesture describing the donation as timely.

He said the donation will go a long way in alleviating problems that patients face while at the hospital.

“We are humbled for the gesture. The donation will assist our clients who lack basic needs while admitted to the hospital as the hospital alone cannot manage to support each and every patient admitted here,” said Juma.

One of the guardians at the children’s ward, Ester Dagalasi, expressed concern that a number of patients in the ward have no relatives to support them as most come from long distant places such that they lack basic necessities.

Dagalasi described the support as significant saying it will make a difference during their stay at the hospital.
