The Development Bank of Namibia has donated medical equipment worth N$88,000 to the Robert Mugabe Clinic to support the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Development Diaries gathered that the bank donated one steriliser machine, eight mobile hospital curtains, ten oxygen regulators and a medicine trolley.

The bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Martin Inkumbi, said that the bank provided the medical aid to assist the clinic in helping Namibians affected by the virus and seeking health care.

Thanking the bank for the donation, Khomas Regional Director, Tomas Ukola, said that the medical equipment will greatly help health workers to provide quality health care.

On the impact of the donation on Robert Mugabe Clinic’s operations, an official of the clinic, Justina Hamunyela, said that like all other Covid-19 facilities in the country, the clinic had been experiencing numerous challenges, including inadequate oxygen regulators.

She said that the donation by the Development Bank of Namibia came at a time the clinic was overwhelmed by many patients experiencing signs and symptoms tied to Covid-19, as well as higher demand for oxygen.

According to her, the donation will go a long way in facilitating timely treatment of patients, improving staff morale, enhancing productivity and efficient service by the clinic’s frontline health care providers.
