Petroleum Importers Limited (PIL) says it has identified health as one of the sectors to benefit from its corporate social responsibility initiatives this year.
PIL General Manager, Enwel Kadango, said the consortium of fuel companies remains committed to support government efforts to improve healthcare delivery.
Kadango was speaking when PIL donated various items to Mulanje District Hospital. The support was worth K5 million and included mattresses, an oxygen concentrator, gumboots, suction machines, among several others.
Kadango said over the past months, PIL has been assisting some institutions in the health and education sectors.
“We believe the donation will help improve the welfare of patients as well as ease the working environment for staff members,” Kadango said.
He then appealed to other private sector players to hold hands with government in improving service delivery in public institutions.
Mulanje District Commissioner, Fred Movete, thanked PIL for the donation.
“The facility also serves people from surrounding districts as well as from Mozambique and this has resulted in increased pressure on the limited resources that the hospital has,” said Movete.
