Fantastic news! The new solar power installations are completed at Chitambo Hospital and its 2 remotest 'hard to reach' rural health clinics (Gibson and Chipundu).
At Chitambo Hospital, the panels have been placed on the roof of the hospital laboratory. They will provide vital backup during all too frequent power outages.
Sincerest thanks to Scottish Government for funding this life saving initiative and to First Aid Africa for driving it through in collaboration with our local FoCH Project Coordinator.....and of course the Chitambo team who proposed the need in the first place.
