Letlhakane hospital benefit from OLDM GM’s walk
Letlhakane Primary Hospital are the lucky beneficiaries of this year’s Debswana General Manager’s Charity Walk.
Speaking after the annual 20kilometre walk, Orapa, Letlhakane and Damtshaa Mines (OLDM) GM, Bakani Motlhabani revealed that all funds raised from the event would go towards building a maternity wing at the hospital.
The gruelling walk, which attracted close to 1, 000 participants, was held under the theme: ‘50 years of Orapa Kimberlite – 50 years of diamonds for development’.
Explaining the reason for holding the walk, which started in Letlhakane and ended in Orapa, Motlhabani said it was an opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of the less fortunate.
Indeed, since its inception in 2002, the GM’s Walk has contributed towards various socio-economic projects in Boteti, including the construction of eight houses for the region’s needy, at a total cost of P1.2 million.
Emphasising the importance of a maternity ward, Motlhabani described it as a crucial part of any hospital, adding, “It will enhance the right to life through safe maternal delivery!”
