Whether it’s arming individual healthcare workers with new insights and skills or consulting with the Zambian Ministry of Health on policy development and research initiatives, OkaZHI’s aim is to build the capacity of Zambia’s healthcare infrastructure and empower Zambian healthcare workers to deliver the best care possible.
WE ARE ALL ONE
Our organization relies completely on the work of our volunteers so that we can keep administrative costs to a minimum. This means, that when you donate to OKaZHI, 100% of money will go directly to the work of building a healthier Zambia.
