Stanbic Bank Donates A Solar-powered Borehole And A 10K Litre Tank To A Hospital In Wedza

Stanbic Bank has donated a solar-powered borehole and a 10 000 litre tank to Mt St Mary’s Hospital in Wedza, Mashonaland East.

The donation is part of the financial services provider’s commitment to complementing the government’s health delivery services obligations.

The Standard Bank Group subsidiary’s Head, Brand and Marketing, Palmer Mugavha, said the donation was in response to a call by authorities from Mt St Mary’s Hospital who were facing challenges in accessing a constant supply of water. Mugavha said:

It is a fact that the non-availability of running water can heavily compromise service delivery within our health institutions because running water is critical. As Stanbic Bank Zimbabwe we appreciate this fact and hence we committed to the provision of an independent water source that would ensure the Hospital operations are never disrupted due to lack of water.

Last year alone Stanbic resuscitated a maternity operating theatre at Sally Mugabe Hospital as well as refurbished the recovery room. We handed over a haemodialysis machine to Gwanda General Hospital and 400 blankets to Harare Children’s hospital as we continue to support  the growth and sustainable development of public health services in Zimbabwe through Ruyamuro-Usizo.

Over the years, Stanbic Bank has supported the nation’s health institutions through its flagship health initiative, Ruyamuro-Usizo.

Mt St May’s Hospital Doctor-In-Charge and Wedza District Medical Officer (DMO), Dr Herbert Bandiki, expressed gratitude adding that the water would be used in the various sections of the health institution.

Dr Bandiki said the 140-bed hospital attends to over 89 000 patients from Wedza District, Masvingo and other areas.

He said while every department needed water, the maternity wing is the worst affected because the institution offers free service in that section.

The demand for water is very high given that over 13 clinics in and around Wedza refer their patients to the Hospital.
