Welcome on the website of Lumezi Hospital
The government in Zambia is not able to deliver
educated staff, till equiped houses are available. We are trying
to realize 3 new staff houses of € 25.000,- each.
Two of the staff houses
are realized already.Hhowever, the hosptial needs more houses to
give the doctors and employees a place to live and work. Without
these facilities a lot of local people will be excluded from healthcare.
Located in the Eastern Province in Zambia, on the road connecting
Chipata to Lundazi. This Missionary Hospital, run by Sister-in-charge
Hermenegilda Mbaga (from Mozambique), receive about 500 patients
a day in the ambulatory.
Lumezi Zonal Health Centre is currently operating
as a level one hospital. The process of upgrading the centre to
a first level referral hospital has already started, but official
requests sent to the Ministry of Health in Lusaka have not yet been
approved. Recognition of Lumezi Zonal Health Centre as a level one
hospital will allow us to receive the medication, funding and staffing
appropriate to our level of work and enable us to continue providing
quality health care services to Lumezi community and the nearest
centres. Equipment in theatre and x-ray are out-dated and inadequate
for the centre operating at its current level. Staffing levels are
very low for Lumezi to provide quality health services. We need
assitional housing to enable staff to come to Lumezi. None of our
CDEs are on the government payroll, unlike in other mission health
