New Marternity Ward at Opuwo opening Thurs.

OPUWO: The modern Maternity Ward at the Opuwo State Hospital will officially be opened on Thursday.

The building was constructed at a cost of N.dollars 18 million, donated by the Spanish Government last year.

Minister of Health and Social Services, Richard Kamwi will officiate at the event, and will be accompanied by the Spanish Ambassador to Namibia, María del Carmen Díez Orejas.

The new Maternity Ward was completed in September 2013, but could not be opened then as a few materials were still to be delivered from different companies and a lack of nurses to run the ward at the time.
