Since the completion of the Claire Kartenger maternity ward in December 2016, the Royal Zambezi Lodge continues to raise awareness of the community projects it is involved in. The Lodge also works tirelessly to source the funding and support that is necessary to improve both the quantity and quality of the medical facilities available in Chiawa district.
Natalie Black, the Lodge’s General Manager, is pleased to report that the next phase of this project is now underway. The Lodge has begun work on the construction of doctors’ accommodation, which will enable the Ministry of Health to transfer and position staff within the village, to assist the resident nurse, Rosemary. Funding has also been secured, furthermore, to build accommodation for medical interns, who will surely prove to be an invaluable resource to the community clinic.
