The German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) has donated anthropometric equipment and under five cards to health facilities in Kawambwa district, Luapula province.

The equipment is meant for growth monitoring promotion which is a core focus of Food and Nutrition Security Enhanced Resilience (FANSER) project in addressing malnutrition in the district.

Speaking during the handover of the items, Luapula Province GIZ – FANSER Regional Coordinator, Hendrik Hoffmann said the donation comes after an assessment carried out in the district of needed equipment.

ZANIS reports that Mr Hoffmann said the equipment is part of the consignment bought by GIZ for the six districts supported under FANSER project at a cost of 80, 000 Euros.

He has urged the recipient health centres in the district to put the equipment to good use.

And receiving the equipment, Kawambwa District Health Director, Chola Kaunda thanked GIZ for the timely donation and support in nutrition programmes.
