Nchila Wildlife Reserve Projects - North West Zambia
Pete Fisher, his wife Lynn, his daughter-in-law Sarah Peat Fisher, and her husband Chris own and manage the Nchila Game Reserve in NW Zambia. Nchila Game Reserve is the home of the Amy Bell Memorial School and the Hillwood Orphanage. The Fisher family also oversees and assists the Kalene Mission Hospital and the Kalene Nursing School which are located nearby. Amy Bell Charities provides support for the operations and maintenance of the Amy Bell Memorial School. This school supports the children of the Hillwood Orphanage as well as hundreds of other children from throughout this region in this very remote corner of NW Zambia.
Amy Bell Charities also provides supplemental support for the Kalene Mission Hospital (established in 1903 by members of the Fisher family) as well as the Kalene Nursing School.
Amy Bell Memorial School
The Amy Bell Memorial school is being run by Sarah Peat, wife of Christopher Fisher and daughter-in-law of Lynn and Pete Fisher. Sarah is a wonderful young lady who is totally committed to the education and wellbeing of over 200 children at the Amy Bell School. The school not only supports the 40+ children from the orphanage but an additional 150 to 200 children from throughout the region. Sarah has truly become the personification of Amy Bell in this special place.
Kelene Misson Hospital
Amy Bell Charities also supported the construction of a new maternity ward for the Kalene Mission Hospital. A portion of that maternity ward is known as the Reese and Charlotte Wheeler Neo-Natal Center in honor of the Bell’s two grand-nieces. Reese and Charlotte are the beautiful twin daughters of Ellen and Corey Wheeler.
The Hillwood orphanage was established by the Fisher family to look after children in the area who has lost their parents, or has only one working parent. There are some incredible people that look after these wonderful children.
