Historic meeting

Mr. Mwelwa, I presume?

These words echo the historic meeting between Dr. David Livingstone and Henry Morton Stanley, shortly before Livingsotne died at Chief Chitambo's village, some 70 miles north of the current Chitambo Hospital.

They may not be the exact words uttered by our Chitambo partners when our Chesterfield-based Trustee Mr.Chola Mwelwa arrived home at Chitambo and sought a meeting with them. Mr. Mwelwa is a ciLala gentleman, from Chitambo village, making him the perfect go-between on Friends of Chitambo and Small Grant business.

An email from Dr. Mmamalutelo Siame, Senior Resident Medical Officer, confirmed that Mr. Mwelwa had arrived safely and that a meeting had been arranged. Mr. Mwelwa had gone armed with a long list of discussion points and had also offered to take many photographs. He is a very keen photographer.

A later text message from Levi Chifwaila confirmed that the meeting had been a great success. We all look forward to hearing the details.
