We financed the construction of a well in Buntungwa, the compound near the mission where many of the children we have adopted are located. Sister Sabine told us that there was no drinking water in the whole village. As can be seen from photos. That well has now become a precious resource for everyone!
Acquisition of 30 beds for ‘Itezhi Tezhi District Hospital‘
Thanks to the help of many benefactors, we contributed to the purchase of 30 hospital beds that have arrived and are already operational in Itezi Tehzi in the only hospital in the area. “Itezhi Tezhi District Hospital” has 50 beds in all plus 6 for children in Maternity.
The district of Itezhi Tezhi has about 100,000 inhabitants, scattered in numerous villages, between the lake of the same name, the plain of the Kafue river and the slight hills further north.
Here Don Michele, a Comboni priest, works to help the population who continue to die of malaria, tuberculosis, meningitis or crocodile bites.
The district, located in the central area of Zambia, is more than 500 km from the Luanchya area where we work with DaGama and the missionary nuns of Assisi.
