Medical Outreach to a Jewish Tribe in Zimbabwe
Organized by: Dwan Rager
EVENT DATE Jul 24, 2015
When I first learned of Jewish Voice Ministries International Medical Outreaches to several groups of "Lost Tribes of Israel" throughout Ethiopia and Zimbabwe, I was beyond ecstatic! First of all, it is amazing that over the last several years, these people, who ancestors once dwelt in the land of Israel but were scattered throughout the earth due to persecution and the destruction of Jerusalem. have now been discovered living in remote places in Africa. Not only are they still practicing much of their Jewish culture, passed on through the generations, but scientifically, their DNA has proven they are of Jewish descents and that in some cases, could be identified with specific tribes in ancient Israel. For the most part, their cultural differences set them apart from other tribes in Africa, causing them to be rejected, despised and left without access to some of the basic requirements of life, like medical care. Having had a life long love for Africa as well as the Jewish people, I knew that if I could raise the money, I would HAVE to go on one of the JVMI medical trips. Thank you for helping to make this a reality for me.
