A Foundation is Born!
On 25th August, the Zalala Foundation with headquarters in Supinho Village was inaugurated. Lodge owner, Angela Hadjipateras, was honoured with a plaque on the door of the new building and members of her family came from the States, Greece and the UK to be present at this special occasion. The new Foundation will not only continue the ongoing community work which has been undertaken by Zalala Beach Lodge for many years, but will also expand this work into new areas. The first major project involves the building of a new health centre on the island of Idugo. This island, home to a number of Lodge staff, with a population of approximately 18,000, currently has no health facilities. The building of a clinic with diagnostic capacity and equipped with two trained medical staff, will make a huge difference and is eagerly awaited by all the islanders.
