I Refuse!

by theresap

With a successful 2013 NFA mission season behind us, we begin preparations for 2014. The first task is to review applications that have come in over the past year.

“I have always wanted to…”

by theresap

A phrase we so often read on applications       submitted to Nurses for Africa is:  “I have always wanted to go on a mission to Africa” or ” I have wanted to do something like this forever”. Remarkably, we hear that same statement from 22 year olds all the way up to 62 year olds.  There […]

Malenga

Malenga is one of the communities that Nurses for Africa visits.  It is the only urban area that is served by the nurses. I have been the team leader to Malenga for the past two years and would like to tell a little about it.  Malenga is along the highway to Kitwe – about 25 […]

2012: Missions Accomplished!

by theresap

How do you measure the “success” of a medical mission? Success is not measured by the number of medical assessments completed or the number of miles walked on home visits.  It cannot be measured by how many children attended kid’s day activities or how many suitcases of supplies and donations were distributed.  It is not […]
