Generators were officially handed over to the Nhlabane and Mbonambi Clinic by the uMfolozi Municipality, Richards Bay Minerals (RBM), Department of Health and Mbonambi Traditional Authority.
The interruptions of critical healthcare services due to power failures such as load shedding will now be a thing of the past for patients and staff in both clinics.
The Clinics operate on a 24-hour basis and need lights to be on at all times, in order to serve the rural communities.
Provincial Department of Health, Primary Healthcare Manager, Gcina Radebe, welcomed the donation of the generators and said it is critical for a clinic to have power in order to operate efficiently and save lives.
Radebe also said the Department of Health, through the proposed National Health Insurance (NHI), aims to transform public clinics by ensuring they are fully equipped.
