The two footbridges which NMSI and Suscon jointly worked on for the Bauleni community to provide safe pedestrian traffic whilst trying to help prevent infant mortality when crossing the deep culvert are now fully complete. 

Given the current restrictions on public gatherings in Zambia, a formal opening ceremony has had to be postponed however we aim to complete a formal handover once restrictions have been removed and public assemblies are permitted once again.  It is hoped that these bridges will be a great addition for those who live in this community.
