A delegation of ministers' spouses yesterday donated 100 Christmas hampers worth K10 million to Arthur Davison Children's Hospital (ADH) in Ndola.
The donation is part of the charity initiative sponsored by the Ministers Spouses Club.
Among the assortment donated to the hospital's four wards -- Luangwa, Kafue, Gamma and Muchinga -- were bathing soap, washing powder, children's toys and various foodstuff.
Speaking on behalf of the delegation, club vice-chairperson Phosile Sichinga, the wife of Commerce Minister Bob Sichinga, said the organisation was privileged to make the donation and was committed to helping the needy in society.
And receiving the donation, ADH senior superintendent Sam Phiri expressed gratitude to the ministers' spouses for the gesture.
Dr Phiri said the hospital had been facing a number of challenges which included lack of basic necessities such as those donated to the hospital yesterday.
The ministers' spouses delegation is on the Copperbelt on a familiarisation tour of mining facilities at the invitation of Konkola Copper Mines.
They are led by Mary Shamenda, the wife of Labour Minister Fackson Shamenda, and are today expected to be joined on the tour by Vice-President Guy Scott's wife, Charlotte.
