Kandiana

Kandiana is the old people's home built on the site of Mwandi Mission. Most of the elderly in Zambia are looked after by their family, but there are a few who have no living family, have been excommunicated or are unable to stay with their family for some other reason. The 13 residents of Kandiana have their food cooked by the hospital, which they sometimes supplement by doing some fishing. Kandiana is funded by a Government Grant, which is normally about 2 million kwacha a month, and gifts from other donors.

 

Kandiana was originally a leprosy colony, which was changed to an old people's home in the early 80's.
