160 Kg’s of school supplies donated in the Lower Zambezi community - from the Swissrail Industry Association

On 5 June 2019, camp manager of Baines’ River Camp, Ben McCarthy, made the trip to Lusaka after receiving word of a 160 kg package with the Camp’s name on it. Ben went to collect and load a 353 pound crate onto the back of the truck to bring back to Camp. The contents of the package was a 160 kg’s worth of school supplies intended for two school in the surrounding communities of the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Donations for Chiawa Primary School and Mugurameno Primary School

After visiting Baines’ River Camp in October 2018, a past guest, by the name of Michi Stockli, went back to her home country of Switzerland, with a purpose to uplift the surrounding communities. After contacting several companies within her industry, Michi Stockli received overwhelming feedback and managed to collect and transport the enormous load of donations to be provided for the two schools, Chiawa Primary School and Mugurameno Primary School. Once collected and brought back to Camp, camp managers Ben and Debbie, separated the supplies into two piles before it was sent off to the schools. With the help of safari guide Weston Josiya, Debbie made her way to each school to drop off the supplies. The children and teachers from each school were understandably, ecstatic and overwhelmed with excitement and appreciation.

Baines’ River Camp, would like to express their utmost gratitude to Michi Stockli and the various members within the Swissrail Industry Association.
