Medical Project Update!

By Sarah Nielsen | Impact Manager

Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Rural Zululand Medical and Home Based Care Project in the St.Lucia area. Without your support, many people would not receive the lifesaving medical attention they need!   

In the last quarter of 2019 our medical project staff and volunteers were able to do 92 home-based care visits. They also held 3 workshops on gender-based violence, HIV/AIDS, and sexual health, with a total attendance of 262. All of these workshops were requested from important stakeholders in our communities so we are delighted that they proved to be a success! 

Tim recently came to volunteer with a group of fellow nursing students, and wanted to share his experience: 

“Our goal is to provide medical services and health education to the local Zulu communities, while learning how the health care system operates in South Africa. 

With African Impact, we provide home care, wound care, physiotherapy, home assistance, support groups, and clinical transfers to the local villages. The care we provide is minimal, but the patients are ecstatic for the help we give. I have never seen such joy emitted from receiving something as simple as a small bag of Tylenol. Gradually, African Impact is building up education and health care opportunities that the local communities would otherwise not have access to. From my time volunteering for two weeks, the one word I would use to describe St Lucia's surrounding communities is beautiful - not just the land but mainly the people. They are so happy, welcoming, and hopeful. Their love for each other and visitors such as ourselves is enough to melt anyone's heart.”
