FQM donates K100, 000 to Arthur Davison Hospital
Written by Millennium on August 2, 2019
FIRST Quantum Minerals (FQM) has donated K 100, 000 towards the rehabilitation of a mother’s shelter at Arthur Division Children’s Hospital (ADCH) in Ndola.
And the Ndola woman Maimouna Sall who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro this year to champion the raising of funds for the mother’s shelter at the same hospital has also raised more than K11, 000 for the same cause. About K110, 000 was required to rehabilitate the shelter
ZANIS reports that Ms. Sall was motivated to champion the raising of funds as she understood what it meant to be a mother and in need of help.
She explained that climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro was the hardest thing she had to do in her life but was a fulfilling experience as she did it for a noble cause.
And FQM health care advisor Gertrude Musunka said Ms. Sall approached the mining firm and they decided to put in K100 000 which was a deficit as part of its corporate social responsibility.
ADCH Head of Clinical Care Dr. Mwate Mwambazi explained that the mother’s shelter was in a deplorable state and thanked its partners for coming to the aid of the hospital.
Dr Mwambazi said the rehabilitation of the mother’s shelter was not being done for the hospital entirely but all the people that accessed the services at the children’s hospital.
