The IBVM (Loreto) Sisters from South Africa have worked with the community of Lukulu District in Zambia since 2006.

The project has helped save the lives of hundreds of babies without access to milk formula. With 15% of the Zambian population being HIV positive, many babies, due to the risk of mother-to-child transmission, are unable to be breast-fed after the age of 6-months.
