Gift of  Life for Zambia (Registered Charity No. 1093731)

Gift of Life for Zambia began as a Millennium project by our Church Community to support St Francis Community Integrated Care Programme in Livingstone, Zambia.  The Centre is run by the Franciscan Sisters of Africa, under the leadership of Sister Mary Courtney.

Mary’s team of trained staff and volunteer care supporters offer nursing, counselling, spiritual and emotional support to the families they visit.  Their main aims are to provide holistic care for orphans and others affected by HIV/Aids, to prevent the spread of infection through an education programme, and to reduce poverty by skill training.

Over the last 18 years through the generosity of our congregation and widespread support, Gift of Life for Zambia, has been able to further the vision of the St Francis Community. This has been achieved by numerous fundraising activities such as concerts, coach trips to many varied and interesting places, plant sales, ‘filling a penny jar’, quiz nights and our beautiful Christmas Gift Cards.
