Chitungwiza Central Hospital has been applauded for offering free operation and medical treatment to 16 year old Buhera girl, Bridget Zireni, who has a swollen stomach.

Bridget’s parents could not raise the required hospital fees for their daughter and after an intervention from Chitungwiza hospital, they ran out of words in thanking the hospital CEO, Dr Obediah Moyo.

Bridget’s condition started in 2015 and her mother said the family had almost lost hope as they were turned away at some health institutions which demanded cash upfront before treatment.

According to Chitungwiza Central Hospital authorities, there are indications that the operation could be carried out either on Monday or Tuesday this week.
