My name is Chipa Mwenya, the half Zambian and half Japanese staff at Sakura House.
For those of you who may still remember, last year we had the first ever Zambian food event at our Continental Hotel in Fuchu. Thanks to this amazing opportunity, I was approached by two students from Akita Prefecture University that belong to a non profit organisation called African Village Project.
These students were attracted and really interested about this collaboration that Sakura House had with Zambia, because they started a project to help the local villages in Zambia with medical services by setting up health spots within walking distance. This would really help, for example, those women that are pregnant would not have to walk great distances to receive the care and support they need before their child birth.
