We have a passionate team who all share the same vision; improving access to quality healthcare for people living in rural communities in Zambia.
Our founding trustees and network of dedicated volunteers led the day to day operations of the charity for the first 5 years. In 2015 On Call Africa was able to invest in its first part-time member of staff based in the UK. Adrian supported development and professionalism of the charity, leading to five years of steady growth.
In August 2019 we were able to invest in our first full time employee in the UK, our Director, Ben Margetts who was based in the UK. Last year he decided to move to Livingstone in Zambia so he could have a more hands on approach with the charity and build local relationships as well as spend time with our volunteers.
“It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life to see our hopes realized through the efforts of Ben, UK and Zambian staff and the other trustees. I’ve learned the hard way in business that good ideas aren’t worth much without dedicated people and hard work”.
Our trustees continue to provide oversight and governance, and set the strategic direction of the organisation as we continue to grow. Rapid growth in 2020 has allowed us to grow our team of passionate staff, who work with our network of skilled volunteers to strengthen rural health systems.If you’d like to find out more about our volunteer programme click here
