Bwana Mkubwa constituency Member of Parliament, Jonas Chanda has thanked Indeni Petroleum, Tazama Pipeline and Ndola Lime for constructing a mini hospital in Ndeke township in Ndola.
Dr Chanda stated that the newly constructed Mini Hospital will serve the health needs of many Ndeke residents and those from outside Ndeke Township.
Dr. Chanda has expressed happiness after noting that the mini hospital, apart from male and female wards, also includes paedratric and labour wards which he said are of great significance in curbing maternal and neonatal deaths.
ZANIS reports that the lawmaker further observed that in the near future the mini hospital needed to be expanded so that it could house an operating surgical theatre, a casualty wing as well as a mortuary so that residents are not inconvenienced by travelling long distances to access health services.
As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility, Indeni as a lead partner, in collaboration with the two other parastatals teamed up to construct the Mini-Hospital as a way of meeting the much needed health services by the residents in the Township.
