May 2020 report on Clean Water Improves Patient Care

With gratitude to all of our donors, the American Partners are pleased to announce that we have successfully raised sufficient funds to complete the Mwandi hospital water project! So first and foremost we want to send to HUGE THANKS to the 108 GlobalGiving donors who have made reaching our goal possible. Because we have met our fund-raising goal, we are deactivating the "Clean Water Improves Patient Care" project on the GlobalGiving site. All of the necessary equipment and supplies for completing the project have been purchased. Unfortunately, the final installation has been delayed due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Zambia and the installation team's current unavailability. When the team can travel to Mwandi, they will finish the support structure for the water tanks, raise the tanks to the platforms, assemble the water purification system, and link water lines from the tanks to the reticulation system that supplies water to the hospital. The American Partners will make sure that we inform you when the work on the project is finalized. We know that you will be delighted to hear that your donations have provided the Mwandi hospital and its patients with a reliable supply of clean water.

The American Partners are now focusing all of our efforts on the “Solar Project Saves Lives” project (GlobalGiving #58930). The COVID-19 virus has recently reached the rural village of Mwandi and the Mwandi hospital has been designated as the site that will provide care for all COVID patients in the district (about 30,000 people). Even before the influx of COVID patients, the Mwandi hospital had difficulty in meeting normal operating expenses, because of the rising costs of electricity and other services. Now more than ever, a reliable source of power is necessary for saving the lives of patients, those with COVID-19 and those suffering from other health challenges. Please consider making a donation to the Mwandi hospital’s solar project in order to combat the COVID virus in the Mwandi district and to insure that the health and well-being of all patients will be protected.
