The Berea Hospital located in the town of TY is the designated government’s isolation centre.
In a bid to fight the spread of the deadly virus in the country, the Matekane Group of Companies (MGC) donated state-of-the-art COVID-19 equipment to the hospital in June, after making a similar donation to the Queen ’Mamohato Memorial Hospital in Maseru.
Sister Catherine Lebina of the Paray Hospital said the facility served the health needs of the people living in the rural district of Thaba-Tseka.
“The health facility was not necessarily chosen for COVID-19 purposes, but as the management of the hospital. We saw it befitting to help the residents of Thaba-Tseka to fight the spread of the pandemic by turning our convent into an isolation centre,” Sister Lebina said.
The facility she said works hard to ensure that it puts the donated equipment to better use to preserve the lives of the residents of the surrounding areas.
“We will also keep taking good care of the equipment to ensure that it does not only benefit the people of this district but the entire nation,” she also said.
For his part, the chairman of MGC Sam Matekane said the future of this country is in the hands of every Mosotho.
He said made the donation because he realised that it is only Basotho who can fix all the past mistakes and turn Lesotho into the country that they want it to be.
