Ntcheu, December 11, 2019: Seventh Day Adventist members of Ndirande in Blantyre, in collaboration with their partners from Liwonde, donated assorted items worth MK500, 000 to patients at Machinga District Hospital on Sunday. 

Pastor Mascol Chataika of the Ndirande SDA Church, who led the Ndirande Men’s group told the Malawi News Agency (Mana) that the Church has a big role to help the needy spiritually, mentally and physically in their everyday life including patients in hospitals.

Some of the donated items included bathing soap, laundry soap, sugar and salt which Pastor Chataika described as crucial necessities.

“Sugar and salt are crucial because they are part of our everyday food ingredients such as tea, porridge, relish and many other foods. On the bathing soap everyone needs to bath and wear clean clothes so these items are necessary,” said Chataika.

Stanley Kaputeni of Liwonde SDA men’s group hailed the Ndirande men for coming to Liwonde and cheer the patients at Machinga District Hospital.

He urged other churches to emulate what SDA had done.

District Nursing Officer at Machinga District Hospital, Memory Bwanali thanked the SDA members for their gesture.

“On behalf of the Machinga District Hospital, let me commend the SDA church for the donation. They have cheered and helped over 180 patients with their daily needs, this is very much appreciated,” said Bwanali who is also the Matron for the hospital.

One of the SDA church members from Liwonde, Alexander Chilikumtima said the church was doing what Jesus Christ was doing in the Bible.

The group visited the Pediatric, Male, Female and TB Wards.
