Communities around Mlare health centre have asked Karonga District Office to end water crisis that has hit the facility saying is affecting health service delivery.
The call was made on Saturday when National Initiative for Civic Education (NICE) introduce formulation of Health Service Charter with funding from Tilitonse Foundation in the area.
Commenting on the matter a member of citizen forum Kwame Munthali said it is pathetic to see the health centre operating without water for two years,
“We are wondering, Health Officers are the ones teaching us about sanitation and hygiene, and without water i don’t think there can be hygiene,” said Munthali.
He added; “Why is the health facility is operating without water for such a long period?”
Munthali continued by thanking NICE for introducing the service charter he said would hold service providers accountable.
