Summary

As winter grips Zambia, children in detention face harsh conditions, lacking adequate clothing and warmth, leading to physical and psychological strain. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, UP Zambia aims to provide warmth to 500 children in four correctional facilities in Lusaka and Southern Province. UP Zambia offers free legal representation and support to children in conflict with the law. In honor of our 10th anniversary, a donation of $10 will provide warmth to one child.

Challenge

Ten years ago, friends visiting Kamwala Remand, now Lusaka Remand Correctional Facility, with 50 blankets sparked a movement aiding thousands of children in the child justice system. Grateful children said, "Thank you for coming. Tonight will be warm. Tonight we will talk about being treated like human beings. Please do not forget about us." As winter sets in across Zambia, the cold nights are especially harsh for children in detention, causing physical discomfort and psychological strain.

Solution

A donation of $10 can provide a blanket, a pair of socks and a hoodie for 1 child. This small contribution can bring comfort and show these children that they are not forgotten.

Long-Term Impact

Your support goes beyond providing warmth. It reinforces the mission of UP Zambia that every child in conflict with the law is seen, heard and given a fair chance at justice and rehabilitation.
