On behalf of Boitekanelo College, Provost & Vice Chancellor Professor Omur Cinar Elci on Wednesday April 27th handed over five (5) wheelchairs to Molepolole Scottish Livingstone Hospital.
The wheelchairs were received by Hospital Manager, Abednego Mafhoko, who said that the hospital has come a long way with Boitekanelo College, the association was also able to donate residential stair lift installers to some of the hospital floors.
He recognized BC efforts to go an extra mile by being an active stakeholder in improving the welfare of the physically challenged.
Giving her remarks, Hospital Matron, Portia Seduledi expressed her gratitude for the donation, saying wheelchairs are a special commodity that no one can do without in a hospital, some patients are very thankful since having a Transit wheelchair for a family member is not as easy, specially for their price.
“To someone, it might be small but to us this is a huge and important gift. Indeed, like Psalmist say; ‘when I was hungry you gave me food, when I was thirsty you gave me water to drink.’ Today Boitekanelo has seen the need of the disabled and you gave them feet to walk,” said the Hospital Matron, further adding; “let the spirit continue.”
In closing, the Head of Preventative for Kweneng District Health Management Team, Nancy Mogwera was happy that the Hospital was selected as one of four (4) around the country which would receive the donation, something she described as a special gift.
“We are very grateful that your students are part of us. They are very young and innovative people. Let me highlight that currently they are undertaking a few projects, amongst them is the building of a Coughing Spot in one of our clinics.”
Professor Elci is expected to donate the five (5) more wheelchairs to Kanye Seventh Day Adventist Hospital at a date to be confirmed.
