What We Do

Zambia Medical Mission

What We Do

Zambia Medical Mission brings medical and spiritual help to needy people in rural Zambia. Each July American medical personnel and support staff join with Zambian medical personnel and support staff to conduct clinics at various villages in the Zambian bush. For six days, these clinics offer medical, dental, and wound care, as well as optometry, physical therapy, and lab services. A mobile pharmacy serves the needs of those who come, and spiritual counseling and Bible studies address the spiritual needs of patients. Children learn in the children’s program with singing and Bible stories while their parents wait for medical care.

Where We Go

The Zambia Medical Mission team travels out from Namwianga Mission to rural villages in Zambia’s Southern Province and sets up clinics that operate for one or two days at a time. Communities selected as clinic sites are in remote areas that do not have local medical, dental, and optometric care available. The ZMM team also considers conducting clinics in areas where the church needs encouragement or even in a new area that has not been reached with the gospel.
