PROPHETIC Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries leader, Walter Magaya has donated R1.2 million to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.
The money which was delivered in cash is meant to refurbish as well as improve the water system at the hospitals.
The hospitals were facing major water crises with patients going for nearly a week without potable water.
Speaking during the handover ceremony Magaya said the massive water shortages at the hospitals prompted him to intervene.
“Many of our church members who visit the hospitals have reported that there are immense water problems at the hospitals.
“We heard heart-rending situations in which patients had to carry water from home,” he said
He also said that spiritual healing and medical healing work hand in glove so both healings need to bail each other in difficult times.
“Prophets need the medical side in the healing process.”
He also expressed interest in donating x-ray machines in various hospitals throughout of Harare.
Health Minister, Dr David Parirenyatwa acknowledged massive water shortages at the hospitals.
“Water is always on and off at our central hospitals,” he said adding that the situation gets worse during weekends.
He also applauded this gesture saying it is good for doctors, nurses and patients who in the past were forced to work with no water.
“The donation will go a long way in ensuring that the water system is improved,” he said before challenging prominent people to follow Magaya’s footsteps.
