Aug 19 2010
The Zambia Medical Mission is an annual event that has been taking place since the 1990’s. Every year Americans and Zambians come together to host clinics in four different villages in the southern province of Zambia. This year those clinics were held in Simalundu, Kapaulu, Nazibbula, and Mabuyu over six days. Back in the ‘90s it began as a much smaller operation but has blossomed over the years to now include about ninety-six Americans and over one hundred Zambians. Everyone that participated, which included doctors, nurses, dentists, etc. who took time off from their jobs to volunteer to help serve others. It was amazing to be surrounded by so many optimistic people willing to serve God and the people of Zambia.
