Doors of Hope Zambia is a small nonprofit organization that was founded by Sven Andersson in 2004 and was registered in Zambia in 2006 with the purpose to help the poor and destitute in Zambia, with the main focus in the Ndola area. All of us in Doors of Hope are non-paid volunteers that have a heart for the poor and needy.
Our aim is to address the physical, social, rational, economic, educational, and spiritual issues in the community.
All funds and materials for our needs are provided by sponsors in Sweden thru Doors of Hope Sweden.
WERE WE ARE
We are located in Mackenzie shanty compound in Ndola, which is considered to be the poorest compound in Zambia with a population of over four thousand and of which about one thousand are orphans. Orphans are generally cared for by relatives such as grandparents, who themselves are very poor.
As we receive various materials from donors we provide this to the community at large. For example we have twice donated medical equipment to Ndola general hospital one for K650,000 and anther for K750,000. For more information of what we have been able to do and what we do, go to our information page.
WHAT WE DO
Provide food for the most vulnerable children and old people in the community. Healthcare and medicine thru our medical clinic, helping HIV children with food and other necessities. Transport for patients to the Ndola central hospital and to the children's hospital. When we receive cloths and other materials we distribute this to the needy in Mackenzie. Funeral help for them that cannot afford a coffin or transport to the graveyard.
From our well we have laid a waterline to a tap on the outside where people can draw clean water which is a problem in Mackenzie, as other sources are contaminated. This and much more is what we are doing here in Mackenzie.
