Development of this facility was only made possible by the fundraising efforts of employees, who raised over £51,000. As part of BGL’s commitment to making a difference in the communities we work with, an extra £169,000 was donated by the Group bringing the grand total raised to £220,000.

The Mutaba Health Clinic diagnoses and treats the number one killer in Zambia, Malaria. During the visit, the group witnessed first-hand the impact the clinic makes within the community, seeing two people being treated.
