One of the most important causes of disease in the Third World is dirty water.
Less than 2% of the population of Zambia has access to Clean Water
Average life expectancy was 35 years in 2004
One in five children still die before they are 5 years old
In Lubwe there is just one Doctor for 45,000 people
In the UK we have 90 Doctors per 50,000 people. Please help us to continue to make a real difference. These are people who want to learn - want to live through TB and Malaria, want to see the day when 20% of their children won’t die by the age of just 5 years old. In Zambia and many parts of Africa, many mothers still die in childbirth.
Access to education at Primary school level is improving but one third of children are unable to attend. A large proportion drop out of school because they cannot afford the school fees (around £1 a term).
The economy in the area depends upon the dwindling fish supplies in Lake Bangweula, and subsistence farming in an arid landscape. There is very little possibility of employment in the whole of the Lubwe district and the nearest town is 80 kilometres away.The delightful children are growing up; full of enthusiasm but ill equipped for life.
