Thyolo District Health sounds an SOS on Cholera fight


Thyolo District Health Office has asked stakeholders to help the facility with items to fight against cholera outbreak in the district.

This was said on Tuesday when Friends of Thyolo donated medical supplies such as, chlorine and washing buckets worth K300, 000 to the district’s hospital in aiding the cholera response.

The district’s nursing officer, Hilda Gausi, said the facility has a shortage of items like beds and tents for cholera patients.

According Gausi, the hospital is registering more cases, as of now there are 486 patients who are using ordinary beds meant for other pantients.

“We don’t have the right beds and enough tents to assist cholera patients,” said Gausi.

National secretary for the organisation, Willard Mwambo said the donation was made in response to the call by the authorities on resource constraints.
