Beyond urgent!

27th November 2021

Following our recent Crowdfunding Appeal for an Oxygen Pipeline, for Chitambo Hospital, FoCH has now transferred funds to Mulilo Gases, the Zambian Company which will install the Oxygen Generator and Pipeline.

Scottish Government donated the Oxygen Generator. FoCH and First Aid Africa are sharing the cost of the pipeline.

All that remains is for the Chitambo District MP to release the promised Community Development Funds (CDF) for construction of a secure slab and shelter to house the Oxygen Generator on arrival.

This could not be more urgent, given the latest news on a new Covid varient affecting southern Africa: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-59438723.amp

Reliable oxygen supplies, together with greater availability and uptake of the vaccine, will be Chitambo's best defence and will save lives.
