    Story

    Zambia is a huge, beautiful, landlocked country in Southern Africa. It has two of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa and is home to the Victoria Falls. Zambia is rich in natural resources, and there is a flourishing agricultural industry. Zambians are incredibly friendly and hospitable, and Zambia has boasted a stable government since independence in 1964. Sadly this beautiful country is beset with problems. Half of all Zambian children have lost a parent to HIV/AIDS and 60% of the population live in poverty.

    ARTECO is a Christian orphanage near Kabwe, in Zambia. It is run by Pastor Marian Chishimba who felt a burden for the many vulnerable children, orphaned by the HIV epidemic. It was started in 1995 with 7 children from the streets of Kabwe. It now has a day school for over 300 local children and takes care of about 50 orphans. ARTECO aims to help heal the children's emotional scars from the deaths of their loved ones, and to bring reconciliation between abused children and their families.

    In Zambia there are nearly four million cases of malaria every year, accounting for over a third of all hospital visits and about 8,000 deaths. Sleeping under a mosquito net is one of the most effective forms of prevention. I hope to provide a new net for each of the 50 ARTECO children. Each net costs about £10.

    The bore hole is situated on the outskirts of the little town of Kapiri Mposhi in Zambia. There is no mains water and the residents use unsafe open wells for their drinking water. The bore hole is a safe, covered well with a pump. It was constructed through charitable donations. The bore hole, however, requires further work before it can provide safe drinking water for the area.

    Earlier this year, I visited the Orphanage and saw that the kids were desperate for new nets. I also saw the bore hole, which had rusty brown water. I felt I had to do something to help.
