Healthcare Available to All

In rural areas, medical facilities are desperately needed to reduce the risks of malaria, HIV infections, and malnutrition. In Zambia alone, 40% of children under five have stunted growth, while 15% suffer from malnutrition.   They also have some of the highest rates of child and maternal mortality, in a country where 29% of women between 15-19 have given birth or are currently pregnant.

The rate of new HIV infections amount Zambian adults between 15-49 years of age is 7.4 per 1,000 of the uninfected population.

Fountain of Life Africa completed a new maternity clinic in 2016 in Chibombo, providing a modern facility with equipment and supplies, plus fully plumbed internal showers, sinks and toilets.  As a result, we have seen the number of births attended by a medical professional grow by 50%, a reduction in mortality rates for mothers and babies, with dignity restored to all women.
