Children below the age of 15 are assured of continued free health services at Comfort community hospital in Malawi’s Balaka district, thanks to the district based Alleluya band for soliciting funds during its two month tour for Italy.

Alleluya band leader Paul Subiri told this blogger upon arrival that though they have not summed up the funds realised in Italy, Malawians should be assured that the free health service will continue.

He said:- ” We did the same last year and I assure fellow Malawians that children below the age 15 will continue accessing free health services at Comfort community hospital in Balaka.”

He also said their fans who missed the band for the past two months, will see them back on stage starting from this August end, starting with Blantyre and Mwanza districts.

Subiri also disclosed that they have come from Italy with a second ‘the best of Alleluya band,’ a CD which fans can acquire during the Shows

Alleluya band is an arm of Andiamo youth cooperative trust, and one of its directors Patrick Bwanali said this is part of social and corporate responsibility.

Bwanali said thousands of children have accessed free medical services at Comfort community hospital, and urged other well-wishers to support the good cause.

District health officer for Balaka Bertha Chikuse earlier commended Andiamo youth cooperative trust for supporting the health sector, saying this has eased congestion at the district hospital.

“Apart from offering free services to children below 15 years, Comfort community hospital also provide free but best maternity services, thereby easing congestion at our district hospital,” said Chikuse.

Alleluya band had over 40 shows in Italy, with the sole purpose of raising funds for Comfort community hospital.|+265 999 14 8304| +265 884 03 0389
