Kitwe, Copperbelt Province, ZAMBIA

A bar in Chambishi Township, near the NFCA's (Non-Ferrous Company Africa) Chambishi copper mine. Most of the mine's Zambian workers live here in low income housing. The township has very little infrastructure such as running water, sanitation, electricity or health care and its population suffers from poverty, alcoholism, crime and health issues. The NFCA, a Chinese company, owns and operates several mines and plants in the Copperbelt. The Chinese mother company CNMC (China Nonferrous Metal Mining Co.) has been called a pioneer among Chinese enterprises to implement the 'going abroad' strategy: to carry out international investments and cooperation in order to develop mineral resources and mining industry overseas. Many Chinese companies are involved in construction, agriculture, manufacturing and retail, but the bulk, nearly 90% of Sino-Zambian investment, is in the country's mining sector.
