LICO aids Rumphi District Hospital.

Life Concern Organisation has come to the rescue of Rumphi district hospital’s cervical cancer department by equipping it with a Cryotherapy machine for treating cervical cancer ailments valued at MK 3,500,000.00. The organisation has also made a donation of drugs worth MK 2,000,000.00.

Speaking during the donation, LICO executive director Peter Gondwe said his organisation felt compelled to help the collapsing health sector in the country. “Currently the health sector is collapsing. This calls for all stakeholders to join hands and work out solutions that will aid our hospitals”, he said. Gondwe said the Cryotherapy machine has been bought with financial support from Southern Africa Aids trust.donation cryotherapy machineDonation of a new Cryotherapy machine by LICODistrict commissioner for Rumphi Nhlane commended LICO for the donation and urged other stakeholders to emulate LICO’s good gesture in coming to the rescue of the ailing health sector in the country. Concurring Rumphi district hospital cervical cancer coordinator Catherine Temani commended Life Concern Organisation for reaching out to the rural masses with cervical cancer screening services. She said cervical cancer is treatable so long there is early diagnosis hence urging women to come to health facilities and be screened for cervical cancer. She said the donation of the machine has come at an opportune time as the hospital’s own Crotherapy machine broke down a year ago and the hospital had to refer patients to Mzuzu central hospital for treatment.
