The Story

The purpose of this campaign is to raise £1,000 for the women's shelter in Mazabuka (Zambia) which is in need of some serious attention in terms of improvements and supplies for the women who have to call it home.
This campaign is being ran by CMF Zambia which is registered in England & Wales as well as Zambia as a non profit organization limited by guarantee.
The aim of this campaign is to provide the 30 women that call the shelter home with beddings such as blankets, bedsheets and pillows as well as mattresses.
Currently ALL the women including the elderly, disabled and terminally ill are forced to sleep on the cold hard floor every night due to lack of mattresses or support to provide them.
We hope that with your help we can provide the women who reside in the shelter the basic requirements any human being should be entitled to in 2017.
We cannot do this without your help so please assist by supporting this great campaign by either sharing it amongst your network or by donating whatever you can afford to.
The items required most at the women's shelter that we aim to purchase with your donations are as follows:

•Single & Double mattresses (so know woman at the shelter or their children have to sleep on the floor)

•Mosquito nets (to reduce the risk of Malaria to the women who stay at the shelter where there is not even one single mosquito net)

•Blankets/Bedsheets & Pillows

•Lightbulbs & 1 year pre paid electricity ( the women in the shelter are not able to see after a certain time as no one has installed Lightbulbs or paid for electricity on the pre paid Metre at the shelter)

•Candles (for light until we can raise enough to pay for the prepaid electricity)

•Toiletries ( there are so many women crammed in the small space that hygiene is a major factor as there are 30 women in 6 rooms)
- soap, toothpaste ESPECIALLY

•Tinned/Canned Food, Bread, Maize Meal, Rice, Potatoes, Cooking Oil, Teabags, Sugar & Salt

Almost every single window is broken or damaged at the shelter so we also wish to replace all the broken and damaged glass with new glass so that the women can sleep freely at night without having to be harassed by mosquitos and other bugs as well as the noise from the near by ghetto it's situated to.

Last but not least we would also like to give the building a lick of paint both inside and out to add some colour and energy to its dull and depressing look.
Positive bright and energetic colours will definitely boost morale and energy in the women's shelter which is very much in need of some colour.

ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED CAN BE PURCHASED AND DONATED ONCE WE RAISE THIS MONEY SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET INVOLVED AND HELP US TO RENOVATE AND REJUVENATE THIS VERY MUCH IN NEED WOMENS SHELTER & THE WOMEN THAT CALL IT HOME
