The Chinese have donated thermometers, masks and hospital caps to the Christian Health Association of Malawi-CHAM-as contribution to the fight against Covid-19 in Malawi
Presenting the items to CHAM Monday, Deputy Chinese Ambassador to Malawi, Wang Xinsheng, said the Chinese government is committed to helping ensure Malawi is free of the virus again.
The deputy envoy also said with its experience with the pandemic, the Chinese government will share with Malawi practical ways of fighting the global pandemic.
“We will share with the country how we coped and managed with pandemic. Our government will not relent but give Malawi the necessary support,” said Wang, the deputy Chinese ambassador.
CHAM Executive Director, Happy Makala, was all praises for the government of China for the personal protective equipment and thermometers saying the items had come in handy for them.
Makala said the CHAM hospitals had been struggling to access the PPEs due to financial constraints yet the hospitals have a duty and responsibility to help people who are unwell.
“We have also been hugely affected. Our hospitals do not have adequate protective gear. This donation will go a long way in the fight against the pandemic,” Makala observed.
MAlawi has 336 comfirmed cases of coronavirus with 4 deaths and 42 recoveries.
