Jess in ZimbabweLeave a Comment
Jess had been on the waiting list to go and work with Médecins sans Frontières for a number of months when earlier this year she suddenly got a phone call advising her they had a suitable posting. Unfortunately for Jess it wasn’t counting turtles in the warm waters off the Maldives (although she would have been bored with that in no time at all), but supervising an HIV/AID’s clinic in rural Zimbabwe. What a challenge. Much of the suffering experienced by nations in Africa barely makes the UK news and it isn’t until we visit or have a close friend working in these areas that we truly appreciate some of the issues. This is no exception. Read Jess’s first letter home and look out for more. Well done Jess – an example to us all.
