EVENT DATE: May 13, 2013
Zambia has moved from being potentially one of the continent's richest countries at independence in 1964 to one of the poorest. Today 63% of the Zambian people live on less than one dollar per day. Moreover, at least one out of every seven Zambians is infected with HIV/AIDS, which means almost every family in Zambia is directly affected by the disease.
In May 2013 Ivan will be volunteering his time to provide much needed medical support to the children of this degraded community. In addition to working with current healthcare initiatives and working in a pop-up medical clinic; Ivan will spend his time doing a variety of activities including playing with the children at the orphanage, reading to the children in the school, assisting with construction projects, and assisting with the child sponsorship program.
