Development Bank Donates Equipment to Robert Mugabe Clinic

Robert Mugabe Clinic in Namibia has received medical equipment consisting of a sterilizer machine, 8 mobile hospital curtains, 10 oxygen regulators, and a medicine trolley worth N$88,000 from the Development Bank of Namibia.

This brings the Bank’s COVID-19 donations to N$1.4 million.
Development Bank of Namibia CEO, Martin Inkumbi, said they decided to assist Robert Mugabe Clinic with health equipment and consumables to enable the clinic to reach more Namibians affected by the virus and seeking healthcare.

Khomas Regional Director Tomas Ukola thanked the bank for its donation, saying the medical equipment will be essential to health worker’s COVID-19 response while providing quality healthcare to those in need.

Justina Hamunyela speaking on the impact of the donation on the Clinic’s operations said that like all other Covid-19 facilities in the country, the clinic has been experiencing numerous challenges that include inadequate oxygen regulators and floor metres, oxygen supply, and other medical equipment.

She added that the timely donation by the Development Bank of Namibia comes at a time the medical centre is overwhelmed by numerous patients experiencing signs and symptoms consistent with Covid-19 and higher demand for oxygen in the face of the threats of hospitalisation and death.

The donation, Hamunyela said, will go a long way in facilitating timely treatment of patients, improving staff morale, enhancing productivity and efficient service by the clinic’s frontline health care providers.
