Sr. Mercy Kanyumbu who received the medical equipment on behalf of the hospital leadership lauded CUNIMA for the donation, which she said would go a long way in boosting the health care situation of the facility.
"This is a timely donation; St. Joseph-Ngulundi hospital serves several people and sometimes we do not have these items, which were donated today by the Catholic University of Malawi for the benefit of the patients or health workers", Sr. Kanyumbu has been quoted as saying in the September 18 new report by Agenzia Fides.
CUNIMA’s donation to St. Joseph-Ngulundi hospital continues a tradition that the Catholic institution of higher learning has set over the years.
In 2019, the Catholic institution that is under the auspices of the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) responded to the joint call by Malawi’s President and the United Nation Humanitarian to assist people affected by floods by carrying out humanitarian activities aimed at assisting the victims of the floods.
The Blantyre-based Catholic institution has previously donated assorted items to the people of God in Phalombe, Mulanje, and Chikwawa districts of Malawi in response to effects Cyclone Idai.
“As Malawians we have to be concerned with the suffering of our friends and at Catholic University of Malawi we teach our students the concept of preferential option for the poor hence we came here to help our friends who were hit the heavy rains here in Phalombe,” the Registrar of CUNIMA, Francis Nkhoma, was quoted as saying in the 20 May 2019 news report.
