As part of Christmas celebration, Catholic Scouts of St Michael’s Parish in the Diocese of Karonga, on 26 December, 2019, visited the sick in the male ward at Chitipa District Hospital where among other things they donated assorted items such as sugar, orange squash and soap.
According to the Chair Lady of St Michael’s Parish Scouts, Miss Leah Nyondo, the grouping’s objective for the just ended year was to help the sick and assist at least one woman in need.
“We felt it was necessary to interact with patients during this festive season to share with them a message of hope and that God has not forgotten them,” said Nyondo.
She further said, they conduct several fundraising to raise funds to fulfill the two objectives.
The nurses on duty in the male ward were very grateful for the donation and also encouraged the group to continue with charity work.
