Good day my fellow Zambians,
As you are aware, the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of a large population of Children in Zambia. The University Teaching Hospital has 1655 beds and 250 baby cots. This makes us proud as we thrive through this global economic challenges that all nations are going through.
As the Zambia Association in South Africa, we have recently assessed the situation and have realised that the UTH is not very well equipped with ¾ blankets that can keep the girl and boy child warm and comfortable.
As Zambians living in South Africa, we have taken an initiative to request for donations from all abled and well-meaning Zambians countrywide towards this cause of saving the life of a girl and boy child by the 30th October 2016. OUR TARGET IS TO DONATE 1000 blankets.
Blankets should be ¾ grey or blue in colour. Kindly donate one or more and they should be brand-new.
All donations should be dropped at the Sandton sports club on the 22nd of October 2016 during our Zambia Independence Sports Festival and Family Fun Day that will start from 09 hours until 19 hours.
