Anadkats put up K600 million children facility at QECH


The Anadkat Family has handed over the first phase of the refurbishment of Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital Children’s Accidents and Emergency block at the referral hospital.

The building houses a waiting room, treatment room, cold and grieving room, laboratory and other rooms essential for the treatment of children involved in accidents.

The project will be implemented in three phases comprising a shelter for staff at the department and another block to be used for other general purposes.


Speaking during the handover ceremony, Meetah Anadkat said the family moved to assist in covering gaps at the facility, hence the project.

She said it felt great to see the first phase done and the second phase advancing.

“We are a Malawian family and whatever better things Malawians deserve we want to be part of the provision of such services and that is what drives us to do this,” she said.


QECH Paediatric Emergency Medicine Consultant Josephine Langton described the development as a milestone.

She thanked the Anadkat family for the support she rated as timely.

“Through this project, the environment has improved, space has improved for the children and their family to give them privacy, dignity and support them to deliver the highest possible care that we can,” she said.

All the three phases of the projects are expected to cost approximately K600 million.

The Anadkat family has been undertaking similar projects at the hospital and other charity projects such as construction of prisoners’ rooms and putting beds at Blantyre Prison.

Hitesh Anadkat of the family is the founder of FCB Capital Holdings, a parent company for First Capital Bank.
