Shortcode number for's official!

Thanks to Scottish Government, First Aid Africa, the Zambian Ministry of Health and the tireless efforts of Mr Consider Mudenda, Project Coordinator, money has now changed hands and work to install the necessary infrastructure (masts and radios) to enable the 992 shortcode (free toll) number for health in Chitambo District begins on Monday 4th February. Once implemented, this system will give everyone free telephone access to emergency help and advice, saving lives by cutting down on multiple delays.

FoCH, in collaboration with First Aid Africa and Chitambo colleagues, has  priced medical equipment...autoclave, x-ray processor, laboratory fridge and other items....much needed by the hospital.  These, again sponsored by Scottish Government, should soon be in place and making a difference.
