font size    

Irish government has given Zambia 11.6 billion kwacha (about 2.97 million U.S. dollars) this year to help fight HIV/AIDS and support orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs), Times of Zambia reported on Wednesday.

Irish ambassador to Zambia Bill Nolan was quoted as saying on Tuesday in Kitwe, northern Zambia, that the dedication of the funds was a clear indication that the government was ready to continue supporting the Zambian people in their efforts to attain the millennium development goals and creating a better environment for OVCs.

At the official opening of the Copperbelt health education project training and research center, the ambassador urged Zambians to engage in national building as it was their responsibility, saying no one would build Zambia if they did not build it themselves.

The embassy gave 2 billion kwacha (510,000 dollars) to the center.
