He said Botswana had demonstrated appreciation for Sentebale's efforts to target remote areas, hence NAHPA
had supported 10 clubs and 10 caregiver groups during the 201/19 financial year.
Gaborone North MP, Mr Haskins Nkaigwa had asked the minister why the NAHPA
was still housed under the Office of the President and not the relevant MoWH, and if he was aware that NAHPA
continued to occupy the building whose lease agreement expired in 2015, despite being offered the seventh floor at the health ministry.
He said the donation was a contribution of NAHPA staff members who dug from their pockets to help other Batswana in need.
He commended NAHPA staff for tirelessly working towards the attainment of a compassionate nation since they have made other several donations to different communities across the country.
For his part, principal education officer, Mr Otlaadisang Baleseng, said they appreciated the donation from NAHPA saying it would go a long way in meeting the pupils' needs.
He said it remained God's principle that those who gave to others would be blessed and as such NAHPA staff was blessed indeed.
He said NAHPA
and civil society needed to work together to fight the scourge and ensure sustainability.
Specially elected MP, Mr Mephato Reatile had asked for the number of people with albinism and other disabilities employed in the ministry as well as by NAHPA
, Vision Council and PEEPA.
