This project builds on existing links with Chitambo Hospital including longstanding historical links between Scotland and Chitambo (PLEASE SEE A NEW PUBLICATION: ‘Livingstone’s Hospital: the Story of Chitambo’ by Marion A. Currie. This book is available on Amazon, ISBN: 978-1-4567-9609-9. This book contains details of how to contribute to supporting the new nursing school at Chitambo). The hospital was founded in 1908, by Scottish missionaries, in memory of David Livingstone who died nearby. It was staffed by a succession of Scottish nurses and doctors and is now a government hospital managed by an all Zambian staff.
