Friends of Chitambo is awarded Scottish Government Small Grant Funding!

Friends of Chitambo is proud to announce that we have been awarded a Scottish Government Small Grant to help improve emergency care provisions in the Chitambo District: http://news.scotland.gov.uk/News/Funding-to-Help-the-World-s-Poorest-166b.aspx


This project was proposed by healthcare professionals at Chitambo, according to their perceived local needs. The grant will run for 2 years and will entail collaboration on establishing an emergency care resource centre at the hospital and linking it with rural health clinics by mobile phone, for crucial emergency care advice-giving. This should help to save lives in an area where rugged terrain can make accessing hospital difficult.
