Coronavirus (17)

28 March, 2020

Dear All,

To my knowledge, Zambia is in 'lockdown' for at least two weeks, in the first instance? This is a very frightening time for the whole nation. One of the saddest things is the lack of available government cushioning for employees, especially the self-employed. We are, therefore, very grateful to our grant funders, Scottish Government, for their understanding regarding flexible use of remaining end of year grant funds.

Thank you

Kindest regards


Dr. Jo Vallis, Chair
