1000 Days still going strong - but it's on hold

By Kristine Pearson | Founder

Dear friends, 

As we have noted in previous updates, the 1000 Days of Motherhood has been a great success to date. At least a further 1000 Lifeplayer units are needed to meet the demand.  Zambia is a huge country with more than half the population still living in rural areas, the need remains great.  

Although Zambia has only a few confirmed cases of the Corona Virus, the country is preparing.  Schools and many government offices have been closed. People are being asked to keep their distance and limit domestic travel.  If the virus takes hold in Zambia, it would be catastrophic for the country as their health system is woefully under-resourced.

We are continuing to raise funds to support rural mothers as the Lifeplayer units will be needed more than ever once this emergency passes. We are holding any funds raised until the units would be able to be distributed. 

Therefore, we are unable to provide an update on the project for this quarter. We are in touch with our partners at the National Food and Nutrition Commission who are responsible for implementing the 1000 Days of Motherhood initiative.  They will advise us as to when the project formally resumes with rural comunities.

Thank you sincerely for your continued support.
