The Zambia Outreach Mission Team has just returned from the second annual visit to our brothers and sisters in Chipata Compound, Zambia. The 13 volunteers were welcomed at the airport by 5 members of the parish of St Paul’s, and we began our trip with a visit to St Francis’ pre-school and an Income Generating Programme where we left some items (e.g wool) to help with the work the women in the group are doing. Then we attended along with the home based care teams to families who are dealing with TB or HIV/AIDS.
During our visit the new computer suite was opened and is to be named the “Coalisland Room” in appreciation for the support from our parish. Some of the volunteers participated in some healthcare sessions, sharing their knowledge with the locals and learning about local issues.
Our third annual visit will take place from 1st July -15th July 2015. If anyone is interested in being part of next year’s visit please contact Fr. Paul.
