Walking with the poorest of the poor in Southern Africa, lives have been changed on both sides of the Equator.
In Zambia we’ve been partnering with Hands at Work who work across eight sub-saharan African countries. In response to the HIV/AIDS orphan crisis, Hands at Work exists to mobilise the church to serve and care for the poorest of the poor.
So where do we come in?
In helping them provide support to the communities they work in, we’re in this together. Some of the things we’ve done in the past include building work and health education as well as running kids camps for children. These trips enable us to walk alongside some of the poorest people in both Zambia and previously in South Africa and it proves to be life changing time and time again.
In Zambia our focus has been one particular community – Maposa. Maposa is a farming area with very little development activity and low levels of literacy. Our trips in 2018 will be spending a large chunk of time in this community, befriending the care workers and doing what we can to encourage them.
Be warned though….once you’ve been you’ll be hooked!
