Our Dear Friends & Partners,
Greetings from Ruwa, Zimbabwe, trusting God is protecting you and taking care of all your needs. We wish to share with you what God has been doing through the ministry of Africa Development Mission recently.
CHIPINGE MEDICAL OUTREACH:
Through our partnership with Nurses For The Nations we had 2 nurses from America come to Zimbabwe and team up with 2 local nurses. Together with our Mission Staff they went to Chipinge for 5 days to conduct a medical outreach programme.
The medical outreach program was done in Mujee village in Chipinge that is the Eastern side of Zimbabwe. The local clinics are 7–10km away from the community. Mujee village is a remote area and the communities struggle to get $1 for treatment at a local clinic. They have been affected badly with the drought as they earn a living from their farming produce.
Transforming & Building Lives
A total of 782 people were treated for different ailments such as Acute Respiratory Infections, ring worms, diarrheal diseases, and bilharzia. For adults numerous muscular skeletal conditions were reported which included backaches, which could be attributed to strenuous work done by the communities. We also had a number of adults who opted for HIV testing and counseling. Devotions and prayers were also done each day to share about Jesus to all those who came to be treated in order to point them to Jesus – The Great Physician.
If you feel led to volunteer your service and skill please contact us or Nurses For The Nations as we plan for another similar outreach next year. Also if you would want to assist with medical supplies that we can support the nearby clinics with, please do get in touch. We are grateful to God for opening this door for us to serve the Chipinge community and share the love of Jesus Christ.
