Dr Kaseba’s Ubutala targets rural poor

FIRST Lady Dr Christine Kaseba has said her organisation, Ubutala Bwa Bumi, has started creating partnerships to reach out to poor people in the remotest parts of the country.

And Dr Kaseba has paid tribute to her mother, Loyce Kaseba, for contributing to making her what she has become today.
Speaking during the Ubutala Bwa Bumi fundraising luncheon at State House yesterday, Dr Kaseba said it was not easy to conduct health outreach activities single-handedly, hence the need to engage other stakeholders.
Dr Kaseba said the organisation was established on the foundation of saving lives at all costs, adding that by attending the luncheon, the guests were saving lives and indirectly contributing to national development.
The First Lady reminded the gathering that there were many people who failed to access life-saving health interventions because of long distances to health centres and at times negative attitude by healthcare providers.AShe said statistics from the first outreach activity conducted in Mkushi recently highlighted the urgent need for such outreach health services, thus prompting Ubutala Bwa Bumi to seek support from stakeholders like those that attended the luncheon.

“Our women and children should be accorded an opportunity to live their lives to the fullest through the provision of supplementary health services in Zambia,” Dr Kaseba said.
And Dr Kaseba invited her mother to the podium and thanked her for being instrumental in making her and her siblings what they were today.
She said her mother did all she could to send her children to school.
