Welcome to

Chabbs Cluster

THE STORY

Gwembe in rural southern Zambia was once a fertile region known as 'the land of milk and honey'. 

 

Drought has since affected the area, and poverty has impacted its people. In 2014, local farmers and health workers formed a Cluster to find ways to restore the region to its former glory. They meet in Chabbobboma village, also known as 'Chabbs'.

There’s so much power in connectivity. The more connected we are the better.

In 2016, Zambia's Ministry of Health named Mathews one of its 'most innovative' health workers. 

  

He credits his involvement in the Cluster for this success. He trains other community health workers, and puts  principles like SALT into practice in his everyday work.
