With COVID restrictions continuing well beyond everyone’s imaginations through the end of 2020 and well into the start of 2021, travel restrictions between towns and villages remained in Zambia and being able to arrange for the purchase, transport and installation of the solar panels, batteries and connect power to both the clinic and the school have once again been further delayed.
A team is now able to travel to the community and we can return to the ground, have the materials delivered so the solar system can be installed with a pump for running water from the current hand pumped borehole and connecting the electivity to the clinic can go ahead.
Once the solar panels have been put in place and the batteries connected, we can ensure that the clinic has a constant water supply, a vaccine fridge for newborns and young children as well as much needed sterilization equipment for the clinic to run safely and fully be able to serve the community.
Updates will be shared as progress now re-commences.
The ongoing support in these challenging times for all is much appreciated.
