Another successful trip to Zambia! The tangible evidence of lives being lifted and communities being changed is energizing and exciting!
Some of you may have seen our Facebook post indicating I (Sherri) was slowed down a bit after returning home. Sleeping 23 out of 24 hours is definitely not my normal mo! A trip to the Dr., a diagnosis of pneumonia, and a bottle of antibiotics, however, has me well on the way to recovery.
This episode, however, reminded me forcefully of how dependent we all are on a health care system. As a result, we have renewed our efforts with double urgency to share as many preventive and first-line health care practices in the villages as possible. We've already received messages from the newly trained health workers about the classes they've conducted since returning to their villages. They even know about the Zika virus and what to look for! Innumerable people are already benefitting from their tireless efforts.
We're on an expansion mode as rapidly as funds allow. We provided training in the remote village of Mwense, Zambia and are now looking for people who want to share in the satisfaction of keeping it going. A $50 donation will provide basic supplies needed to support the 18 new Zambian Kafwa for a month. Support these amazing women by making a donation of any size today. Just click on Donate Now
