On Monday, Zeku Safety Focus donated PPE and other supplies worth M100 000 to the Maseru District Health Management Team (DHMT) to assist in the efforts to fight the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at the handing over event, the Minister of Health, Motlatsi Maqelepo, said the donations came at the right time when PPE is needed the most, especially for those who directly work with COVID-19 suspects and the teams that transport patients from their homes to designated areas.
He said this is an unprecedented time and community effort is needed to meet the immediate needs of the frontline healthcare staff as they care for patients. He said the donations will go a long way towards ensuring the safety of the health workers.
Maqelepo appealed to Basotho individuals and organisations to donate and help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Upon receiving the equipment on behalf of the team, district medical officer, Dr Maama Mojela, thanked the company and said the equipment will really help them collect suspects without fear.
