Matola 2 region has received essential protective kits to help in the fight against the Coronavirus. This included hand sanitizer, gloves, masks and thermometers.
All of the equipment was supplied by Premier Lotto and Premier Projects, who have worked as the national lottery of Mozambique for a number of years.
The donation was well received by a doctor at the health centre, who explained: “If I’m protected, I’m able to offer better assistance for someone who needs my help.”
Premier Lotto donated thousands of supplies to Matola 2, which has a number of health centres and GPs. All of these will receive the protective kits as they continue to operate under the shadow of the pandemic.
It is believed that around 50,000 people are treated in these health centres a month. Each one of these will benefit from a fully-stocked medical practice. As the doctor said, if he is protected, he can protect and serve his community.
Now that Coronavirus measures are beginning to relax, workers believed this donation has come at the right time, as more people are confident to come to the health centres.
A spokesman for Premier Projects commented: “This area of Mozambique, so close to Maputo, is heavily populated. COVID-19 is a big risk for the medical staff who are working in tough conditions to protect the community. This donation, we believe, is a mark of our respect to these local heroes.”
Premier Projects have donated PPE kits to similar institutions across Africa since the pandemic struck. This reaffirms the dedication to community from Premier Lotto.
Premier Lotto Mozambique and Premier Projects would like to remind everyone to stay safe during the pandemic. When visiting our shops and agents, please remain socially distant from others and wear a mask where possible.
