Presentation of computers to Makale school

On the 2nd of March 2019, Sunrise Africa Relief donated some computer equipment to Makale village school in a remote district of Eastern province in Zambia.

After a three-hour drive on a dirt bush road from Petauke the Sunrise Africa Relief delegation (led by Robert Williamson one of the Trustees) finally arrived at Makale village school.

The school was constructed just after independence in 1965 and although a government school, it still depends on donations from NGO’s and charities for equipment and infrastructure.

The school had requested support in acquiring computers for the senior classes and on this occasion Sunrise Africa Relief could donate 3 computers to the school. In his address the head teacher thanked the charity for their support and said that he hoped this would be a beginning of a continuous cooperation.

Presentation of baby knitting’s at Makale village

On the 2nd of March 2019, Robert Williamson on behalf of Sunrise Africa Relief visited Makale village, a remote village in the Eastern part of Zambia in the area of Petauke.

A presentation of knittings for premature babies and infants could be made to the village clinic.

These knittings are made by a knitting circle of elderly ladies in Dunfermline who knit for the charity.

The clinic staff expressed their appreciation and with the forth coming winter months where the temperature drops to zero degrees the donation was considered very timely.

The knittings are made from pure wool and thus provide a good warmth for new born babies.

It is hoped that the charity will be able to support the clinic with more necessities in the future. This is the only medical facility in the district serving the population in a radius of 20 kilometres.

Presentation of Smart TV and tablets to Barlastone Park School

On the 15th March one of the Trustees of Sunrise Africa Relief, Robert Williamson, visited Barlastone Park School in a poor suburb of the capital city of Zambia, Lusaka to present tablets and a Smart TV to the school.

The school is currently facing a lot of challenges of securing modern equipment and teaching aids and it is hoped that this donation will go towards alleviating this issue.

The school is determined to keep raising standards and to provide a sound education to the children in the area.

Mr Williamson could also meet the headteacher and the teachers and recognised the determination of the staff to overcome current obstacles. A new governing board is being put in place to broaden the appeal of the school.

Presentation of sewing machines to Chipata compound Mosque

On the 25th of March 2019, Sunrise Africa Relief donated sewing machines along with a local women’s organisation – WFWP- to the local Mosque in Chipata compound in Lusaka, Zambia.

This Mosque is taking care of the people in one of the poorest suburbs of the capital city Lusaka and is also running a primary school of 400 children.

Hailma, the women’s chairperson of the Mosque had asked for sponsorship as the Mosque is currently facing a lot of challenges and to start sewing classes with the young girls would give them an opportunity to learn a skill.

Sunrise Africa Relief was happy to support this initiative and wish the project a great success to help alleviate poverty in the area.
