Rotary Club of Lusaka, Rotary E-Zambezi donate PPEs to 3 Covid-19 Centres


On Saturday, 24th July 2021, Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) worth close to £5,000 was delivered and handed out to three COVID-19 centres in Lusaka by the Rotary Club of Lusaka on behalf of the Rotary E-Club of Zambezi and the Global Alliance of Zambian Health Care Practitioners (GAZHP).

The equipment was mobilized, donated and shipped from the United Kingdom (UK) by E-Club of Zambezi working with GAZHP and was designated for the frontline staff battling COVID-19 at the University Teaching Hospital, Levy Mwanawasa Hospital and Maina Soko Medical Centre.

President Kafula Mwiche with Assistant Governor, Goliath Mungonge and PP Abraham Geevarghese delivered the consignments to the three centres on behalf of the organizations. Rotary E-Club of Zambezi is a new club which was set up three months ago with 21 members globally and the club meets online twice a month. Although registered in the UK, E-Club Zambezi falls under the Rotary District D9210.

And two Zambians based in the UK, Dr Lloyd Lukama and Dr. Emmanuel Zyambo who are owners of businesses providing care services in the UK donated the 23 boxes containing various PPS (face masks, face shields for the cause). The group was moved by the high rate COVID-19 infection among health workers in the country. GAZHP is in the process of mobilizing more PPE for onward donation to the COVID-19 Centres in Lusaka in particular and other Centres in the country.
