GROW WITH MURAMBINDA”: Hospital Nutrition Garden Appeal

Drought and heatwaves with temperatures over 45C are becoming more frequent in Zimbabwe and, with climate change, this is not going to go away.

You can help the hospital grow more fresh food, give patients better nourishment and get them back on their feet!

Your donation can also cut pollution, fossil fuel usage and hospital running costs, and enable the Hospital to earn by selling surplus produce.

There is an old diesel water pump which pumps water from the river into a storage tank to irrigate the vegetables. The pump is on its last legs and lacks power. We need a new more powerful solar pump to reach more plants.

A solar powered pump will reduce pollution, carbon usage and hospital running costs.

The new pump will be more powerful so irrigation will help grow more vegetables. We also need to replace old damaged drip feed irrigation piping and provide an area of shade netting to protect plants from the unprecedented heat.

The increased food production will help nourish patients and staff with good fresh vegetables. The hospital will be able to sell some surplus crops improving its sustainability

Better nourishment staff stay well and helps patients get back on their feet.

The total cost is £7,800, please donate to help the Hospital flourish!
