MAUL Donates to Moyo Babies’ Home

MEDICAL Access (U) Limited (MAUL) has today donated an assortment of items worth USD1,696  to Moyo Babies’ Home for Orphaned and Venerable Children. The items include 26 Mattresses with Macintosh, 26 Blankets, 26 Bed Sheets, 2 Cartons of  Assorted Medicines and a TV 40” Flat Screen. The money to purchase the items was collectively raised by MAUL staff from their personal savings.

“Here at MAUL, we believe the services that we offer should not only benefit our partners and clients, but also the local Health facilities and communities that we serve,” said Josephine Tamale, MAUL’s Administration and Corporate Affairs Manager.

Every year, MAUL through the Restoring Hope Initiative, gives back to the community. Out of this initiative, Moyo Babies Home was identified as the beneficiary for MAUL’s 2014 Restoring Hope Initiative Corporate Social Responsibility Project.

Sister Maureen Kojoa, the Director of Moyo Babies Home, expressed gratitude to MAUL staff for honouring her request beyond expectation. The Babies Home is run by the Sacred Heart Sisters and is home to about 70 OVCs aged 0-6 years.  It provides a loving environment, food and basic medical care to them.

“I was not expecting this much although I knew you were coming, You don’t know what you have done!” Sr Kojoa said, adding that the intervention has come in at a time when some of the babies lack mattresses and blankets.
