Mr Chilundika said Government priorities health hence it  will ensure that Luano Kapisha mini hospital becomes a standard and modern mini hospital because it caters for a bigger population

He also donated 2 glucometers with 200 strips, cleaning detergents and a thermometer.

Mr Chilundika who is also Luapula Minister donated some baby hampers to the nursing mothers at the health facility.

He said by next year the construction to extend the mini hospital will commence because the allocation to the hospital has been given under Constituency Development Fund (CDF).

Mr Chilundika also donated cleaning detergents to Kabundi clinic and glucometers to Kings Health post.

And Chingola District Health Board Director Davis Mwewa said Kapisha was designed to be a mini hospital because the area is densely populated.

Dr Mwewa said the facility has maintained its mini hospital name but the infrastructure has lagged behind.
