TPM Zambia Trip Day #4
What a full and productive day! We began by paying a visit to the District Commissioner, The Minister of Health and The Mayor. It is very customary to pay a visit to these individuals and make sure they are aware of what we are doing and ask their permission to teach in their hospitals. Then we were off to Tompson Hospital to teach a Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) class of 15 students. It was a remarkable group of nurses, midwives and Traditional Birthing Assistants (TBA's). They were very receptive, excited and grateful that we were teaching them this course.
We then ate lunch on the patio of a woman who has taken it upon herself to rescue girls from the life of prostitution. Some of these girls are only 10 years old! What a remarkable woman!
After lunch, Karen and Nancy went back to Arthur Davison Children's Hospital to do some teaching with the staff regarding the new supplies we bought them. Linda and I visited a local chemist and ordered meds for the school clinic and orphanages to have so the children could receive medical care.
We then visited Ndola's version of Wal-Mart. Very impressive. Ironically all the clothes were MADE in the USA! We wanted AFRICAN CLOTHES!!! LOL!! Then we were off to our Zambian home, King's Highway. Always a good to come back to the same place!!
Tomorrow will be a big day. A morning and afternoon class at Roan General Hospital. We expect 60 - 70 students. I better get some rest!
Thank you again for all your prayer and support for this team. It has gone a long way in serving the needy.
