More valuable donations and developments

Dr. Bridget Innes, FoCH Trustee/Medical Adviser, donated a consignment of child height/length measuring mats; Mid Upper Arm Circumference (MUAC) tape measures; and pulse oximetres, for non-invasive monitoring of oxygen levels in the blood.  She delivered these to Chitambo in  March 2019, along with a few BNF drug formularies donated by a Scottish medical practice, and some baby/child clothes (Pictured below).

Dr. Innes is collaborating with Chutambo Head Nutritionist, Mr. Brian Mwense, on developing vegetable gardens to fund nutrition improvements for local villagers.  Fields of cabbages are already flourishing.
