Surprise donation

Out of the blue come more amazing 'old friends' of Chitambo, Dutch couple Fokke and Lia Goudswaard. They were based in Zambia during the 1970s and their first child was born at Chitambo Hospital (1976). They have very fond memories of Chitambo so, when celebrating 'significant' birthdays this year, they requested no gifts but only donations to Friends of Chitambo. They were clear that the reason for selecting us as custodians of this generous donation is that we are a grassroots organisation, 'only 2 steps away' from action on the ground at Chitambo.
Our committee will discuss best use of their generous donation. However, one option would be to provide more tablet pcs for hospital and clinics, as requested by the hospital team in February 2018. This would give clinical staff greater access to emergency care Information.
We are much humbled by this surprise donation and can't thank Fokke and Lia enough for their immense generosity. Thank you so much, you are making a real difference.
