Luisa Guidotti Mission Hospital Mutoko, Zimbabwe - Case Study
The Luisa Guidotti Hospital is located 170 km from Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe at the “All Souls Catholic Mission” of Mutoko. In the last decades the Hospital has grown, gone are the huts replaced by buildings in cement with a 150 bed capacity serving thousands of people living in the surrounding villages.
In March 2019, it was possible to install a new hospital solid waste sterilizer, through the collaboration and support of Newster Group, the Embassy of Italy in Zimbabwe, Cesvi and Associazione Spagnolli Bazzoni NGOs (Italy). The hospital is now able to dispose of infectious solid waste in a safe way and has been recognized as a site for the recycling of sterilized material by the Environment Management Agency of Zimbabwe.

‘’We are really happy about the support received by Newster. Correct waste disposal is fundamental for the safety of our hospital. Our wish is to achieve environmentally friendly disposal and show that Africa is ready to carry out projects of this type.’’
