A friend in need is a friend indeed is what Entebbe Hospital says about National Medical Stores (NMS) thanks to the assorted food items that National Medical Stores (NMS) donated to the Entebbe Hospital staff on Wednesday that have been at the forefront of treating patients with the pandemic.
According to the General Manager, National Medical Stores Moses Kamabare, the donation of food items to Entebbe Hospital Staff is part of NMS’s Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) to thank the health workers that have been at the frontline and working tirelessly treating patients with the pandemic.
Most important is that National Medical Stores and Entebbe Hospital are neighbours and every year we identify something in Entebbe Hospital that we help out with and it’s only this year that we have brought food items because it was their priority. The health workers have not been going home to check on their families for the last three months and we as National Medical Stores appreciate the work the hospital staff are doing and we are humbled to put a smile on their faces.
“We have donated food items including 1300kgs of Sugar, 1300kgs of rice, 1300kgs of posho, 390 liters of cooking oil, 130 tins of powdered milk, 260 packets of wheat flour and 260 sachets of salt worth Shs51million,” added Moses Kamabare
On his part, Entebbe Hospital medical Superintendent Dr.Moses Muwaga, thanked National Medical Stores (NMS) for the gesture and called on other well-wishers to come on board and support Entebbe Hospital
I want to thank National Medical Stores (NMS) so much for donating food items to the staff of Entebbe Hospital who have been at the forefront of fighting the pandemic. The staff have not been going to their homes and have been staying in the hospital for the last three months and their families have been complaining that they didn’t have food items and when they are given something to give to their families, it makes them happy because it’s not easy being at the forefront fighting the pandemic, it takes a lot of sacrifice. We now have 21 cases in the Hospital and we have taken samples from them and after two days, if they are positive, we take them to the confirmed case unit.
In his remarks, the NMS Board Chairman, Jonas Musinguzi, also thanked the Entebbe Hospital staff for the work done in fighting the pandemic and added that Entebbe Hospital hasn’t lost anybody due to the pandemic.
