    Story

    Hello friends, family + supporters!

    In May 2017 I will be moving to Zambia for 14 weeks to help build and Project Manage the final construction phase of a Health Care Centre in a remote, rural region of Zambia. I will be working with Orkidstudio, a charity and humanitarian architectural practice.

    The Health Care Centre helps hundreds of patients each year and as the only centre within 300km, many people cross borders to find treatment.

    The existing building was run-down with limited facilities and was struggling to cope with the increasing number of patients. The buildings were badly ventilated with low light levels and perpetuated the spread of disease.

    The new Health Care Centre aims to significantly improve the facilities through good design, providing naturally ventilated spaces and purpose-built wards. This re-build will help the Centre gain the certification needed to obtain government approval as a District Health Care Centre, which will mean the provision of additional trained doctors, mid-wives and nurses.

    The project will have a huge positive impact on the health and well-being of both the patients and the locals who assist in the construction process. The build has already had such an affect on the local community; promoting equality, educating and empowering men and women alike, and demonstrating how new forms of local building techniques can encourage social and economic growth.

    For more information please get in touch with me, or visit Orkidstudio's project page or blog:

    Please show your support, no matter how small - your funding will make such a difference to the Sachibondu community, the Health Care Centre and to all those who will walk through its doors.

    I will update this page with my fundraising progress and efforts over the next few months so please check back for updates!

    Thank you!
