2014 Pediatric Ward, Makeni, Zambia
Zambia is one of the African nations with the highest infant mortality rate. Especially in rural areas, childbirth is often transformed into a tragic event that leads to the death of both the child and the mother. It is for this reason that the DEL CONCA Group has decided to participate in a new Solidarity project. To reduce the suffering and child and infant mortality in Lusaka in Zambia, construction of a new pediatric ward has begun in the St Clare Clinic, located in the extremely poor neighborhood of Makeni. Construction work began in January 2015 and the clinic will be open and operational by the end of the year.
