The Liberi Foundation had the pleasure of attending the festive opening of the new health clinic in Kamimbi on October 13 2023. The clinic was constructed on behalf of the Liberi Foundation and donated to the government of Zambia on the specified date. We take pride in what has been achieved: ‘a solid building that meets all medical basic requirements.’ The clinic will provide preventive healthcare, and in addition, there is also the possibility of admission and performing (minor) medical procedures. The entire village and its surroundings had gathered for the opening. It was overwhelming to see the joy that prevailed among them.
The clinic consists of the following spaces:
1. Separate observation rooms for men, women, and children
3. Waiting room
4. Consultation room
5. Treatment room
6. Dental practice
7. Toilet and shower facilities
8. Storage room
What we at the Liberi Foundation are most proud of is that this project has been a true collaboration between various parties, including the local community, the government, Wilde Ganzen, Netherlands Red Cross and medical specialists from the Netherlands and Zambia. The government funded the entire facility setup of the clinic and four additional staff members have been hired. The local community was actively involved. Without their support, a project is futile and destined to fail. They installed a large fence around the complex at their own expense to keep wildlife and livestock out. From start to finish, they voluntarily put in a lot of work, such as digging, cleaning and planting trees.
