MASERU - In a continued effort to fight the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Lesotho, Lesana Financial Services on Tuesday handed over 170 facial masks to learners and teachers at ’Mampota High School. Situated in Ha Mokhele in the Berea district, the school was not spared the devastations caused by the pandemic that has already killed millions of people across the globe.

Most of the learners at this school are orphans and underprivileged children. The masks were handed over to the school principal, Sister Blandinah by Lesana’s deputy chief executive officer Vincent Khitšane who accompanied by two regional managers, Tumo Nkhasi and Kojang Mohale.

Lesana Financial Services is a micro-financial institution registered following the laws of Lesotho, including the tax laws, and is regulated by the Central Bank of  Lesotho (CBL).

“The company offers loans only to civil servants for now and it offers any amount from just M1 000 up to M150 000 payable for up to 72 months. “We charge the lowest interest rate of them all,” Mr. Khitšane said.

The company has done several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects in the country, particularly in line with the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

“We will continue with this fight until we win. We must provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to local schools because that is yet another area where the spread could easily get out of control. “We urge all learners to continue washing their hands, using sanitizers, wearing facial masks, and observing social distancing,” he added.

To date, the pandemic has killed 44 people in Lesotho with 975 recoveries. A total of 1 953 cases have been reported with 22 645 tests conducted.
