Authorities at Madzimoyo Rural Health Centre in Chipata have complained of facing serious shortage of water supply during the dry season.
Nurse In charge, Mary Zulu, says the only open well dries up during the dry season, a situation which causes panic to members of staff because it is difficult to carry out deliveries.
Mrs. Zulu says the well has a submissive pump but water levels go down between September and December.
She stated the need for government to find an alternative solution to the challenge because pregnant women face serious problems when delivering.
And Mrs. Zulu has expressed happiness that it is now easy to work and store medicine after connection of power to the rural health centre.
And Provincial Water Officer, Charles Changa, says the department will soon attend to the water problem.
