This October 2012, myself and 6 other medical professionals, consisting of 2 family practice physicians, 2 family practice residents and 2 nurses. We will be working at Lumezi Hospital and a local clinic. This hospital has 1 doctor and 1 registered nurse and 3 midwives and they receive approximately 500 patients a day.
The most common illnesses are malaria and HIV/AIDS. Two thirds of the children in Zambia have malaria and 120,000 children are estimated to be infected with HIV. I want to expand my services to those who are in desperate need for the knowledge and services I can provide. The most difficult part of this trip is raising the money to help me get there. I need all the support I can get. No donation is too small and all would be greatly appreciated. The money donated will also go towards medical supplies needed to help these children have a better chance at life. I will also be having a fundraiser and will keep you posted once it is organized. Thank you so much for supporting me on this amazing opportunity and adventure. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email, call or text me.
