The contingent of health workers landed in the country on September 7 and will assist nearly 300 patients at the hospital for 10 days.

Lilongwe Rotary Club has assisted their arrival and will spend 60 million Malawi Kwacha ($107,000) for the exercise.

According to Rotary Club president Christopher Kapenda, his organization has brought in the doctors to assist the government in providing quality health services.

"These doctors will assist a lot in lessening problems that patients are facing at Kamuzu Central Hospital since there are some patients who have been in hospital for long just to wait for the surgeon," Kapenda was quoted as saying.

"On behalf of the ministry of health, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for this wonderful gesture of service above self, truly reflecting the Rotary motto," Kamuzu hospital director Jonathan Ngoma said.

Former Rotary International president Rajendra Saboo and David Hilton are leading the delegation of general surgeons, dermatologists, dentists, gynecologists, urologists, orthopedicians and anesthetists.
