Off to Zambia!


Hooray! My interview was successful!

I'll join the team heading to rural Zambia for two weeks in July.
My task will be that of training the other team members in Primary Health Care and then implementing an intense training programme for the community in Zambia. They are mostly illiterate, speak only the local language and have no running water or clinic.
The next few months will be focused on finding sponsors to fund my trip, getting to know my team mates and learning more about the Zambian culture to make sure we are culturally sensitive in our approach.

From what I've heard it going to be rough - no showers, we have to carry our drinking water and food from South Africa and of course, as with any country in Africa, there will be lots of mozies (mosquito's)!

Thank you to friends and family who are already supporting me!

Dear Althea!
What a fantastic challenge ahead of you! I wish we were a bit closer so we could meet and talk about it and have some fun like we used to have... But I have a new job with a better salary, so maybe next year we will have an opportunity to come and visit again... Keep well! Love, Moniek

I totally agree a hundred%. I can’t believe that he would even associate with that. Individuals nowadays are just unbelievable, by no means ceases to amaze me what individuals do and say anymore. Nice blog.
