Health Centre Chamilala
In August 2015, a new health centre was opened in Chamilala, 100 km east of Mpanshya. The association was able to finance one third of the costs through donations. Before that, a medical crew (doctor, dentist, midwife etc.) travelled to Chamilala on a monthly basis to treat the approximately 250 - 300 patients and to deliver the necessary medicine. The patients were treated in a classroom of Mvuve Basic School. In a second room the midwife held her prenatal consultation. The people, most of them women and children, come from far away and have to walk for several hours to get medical advice. An operating theatre is currently being built and will be ready for use in 2020.
