‘In the groove’ at Lake Kariba

Each year a time away from the base is scheduled by Flying Mission Zambia for its personnel. It serves to give the team a time together whilst away from the usual round of duties at Chilongolo, outside of Lusaka, where the mission operates. It’s a time to replenish batteries. This year the designated venue was ‘Eagles Rest’ at Siavonga on Lake Kariba, which is about three hours driving from Lusaka.

Mukinge Hospital re-visited

Female Ward, where I used to work, has been expanded to include a ‘High Care’ area. Continue reading “Mukinge Hospital re-visited”

We plough the fields and scatter

ploughingIt is the time of year in many parts of the world when the crops have been harvested and the ground is being prepared for fresh seed to be sown. At Chilongolo, Flying Mission Zambia base, the workers are busy getting their portions of land ready.
