Drum Property Group is very proud to support humanitarian design organisation Orkidstudio as they announce their key project for 2016, the redevelopment of a community health centre in Sachibondu, in North West Zambia.
Founded over 45 years ago, Sachibondu Health Centre is located near Mwinilunga, a remote and rural region of North West Zambia, at the upper end of the Copperbelt Region. Each year hundreds of patients come to the Health Centre where they are met by a small team of dedicated nurses and midwives who do all that they can to help.
As the only health centre within 300km, most patients have travelled long distances to reach the Centre, from within Zambia and over the neighbouring borders with Angola and the Democrative Republic of Congo. In the latter in particular, where women are persecuted and have few rights, armed violence a constant threat and many women seek maternity care for pregnancies often caused by rape and abuse.
