Friends of Chitambo at the Annual Penicuik Street Fair

18th August 2019

Words byJo Vallis

Five dedicated FoCH volunteers manned our fundraising stall at the annual Penicuik Summer Street Fair today. All proceeds will go to health projects in Chitambo District, Central Zambia. Although, against all odds, the sun shone all morning and afternoon, we battled a persistent wind which threatened to play havoc with our stall! Even so, we made steady progress, thanks to the team's hard work and the generosity of the Penicuik people. One local lady, a retired doctor, amazed us by announcing that her brother was born at Chitambo! She bought a copy of our book, 'Livingstone's Hospital, The Story of Chitambo.' Chitambo and Penicuik have something in common: they are both places where many people know someone who has been there!
