The rehabilitation of an isolation building by the Chinese Community in the Copperbelt province of Zambia for suspected COVID-19 patients will help improve the health service delivery in Zambia, a senior local government official has said.
Christopher Kang’ombe, president of the Local Government Association of Zambia, said health facilities should be improved for strengthened health delivery to the people.
“What the Chinese have done is commendable for having come to work on the dilapidated infrastructure at Kitwe Central Hospital,” he said.
Kang’ombe was speaking in an interview with Xinhua, that the Chinese have proved to be good partners in the fight against COVID-19.
He called on other stakeholders to come on board by supporting the government in various ways to improve the living standards of Zambians.
Kang’ombe, who is Kitwe Mayor, said it is important that companies through their corporate social responsibility continued to render a helping hand to the Zambian government.
Zambia Chinese Association (ZCA) on the Copperbelt province of Zambia mobilized resources of the identified isolation facility at Kitwe Teaching Hospital.
Wang Xin, president of the association on the Copperbelt province, said the Chinese have also joined other stakeholders to render support to the fight against COVID-19. Enditem.
