NMB (NATIONAL Microfinance Bank Plc) Supports Chamwino Health Centres ny donating medical equipment worth over 10m/- to Membe and Handali Health Centres in Chamwino District, Dodoma Region.
The donations were encouraged by the government prioritizing health of its citizens in its agenda, said NMB Central Zone Manager, Nsolo Mlozi.
Mlozi also stated saying “We are struggling to see into it that in our part of our Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR), health institutions have enough medical equipment in their units.”
The Manager further said his bank has set aside one per cent of its income to accomodate local communities.
Handali Health Centre Doctor-in-Charge, Dr Enock Chitalasita, said the equipment would help about 7,376 residents from Handali, Mjelo, Chanhumba, Igandu, Nghahelezi, Miganga, Chinoje, Mgunga and Ndebwe villages to get reliable healthcare.
Dr Chitalasita further said his health institution also serves for the villages outside Mvumi Ward as far as other districts of Mpwapwa, Kongwa and Bahi.
However, Chamwino District Commissioner, Vumilia Nyamoga challenged the Health Centres’ managements to protect the equipment for the well being of the patients and other coming generations.
Vumilia Nyamoga thanked the bank for partnering with the government to help the local community.
