Nurses for Africa, a non-profit organization sponsored by Ten Talents, has sent up to four teams to Africa each year since its partnership with Hands at Work began in 2009. These medical teams consist of nurses and other medical and non-medical volunteers who run mobile clinics, teach prenatal and wellness classes, and conduct home visits in the poorest of the poor communities where Hands at Work serves. 

Deborah Bullin led an NFA team to the community of Maonde in Malawi in 2017. She shared her reflections and takeaways from her trip during a year-end conference call with NFA team leaders and Hands at Work.  Listen>>
 

“I’m more at peace with the limitations that we have because I do remember that God has a plan. All of the trips that I’ve taken with Nurses for Africa has taught me so much, but this past year has surpassed my expectations of what I was able to learn. It has improved my perspective and trust in God.” - Deborah Bullin

“You don’t even know how much good the nurses did last year. Even our crops were better in the community because our people were feeling well and not sick.” - Pastor Royie

Please pray for the four teams of nurses that NFA will be sending and that Hands will be hosting in Zambia and Malawi this year. The first team heading to Africa from the U.S. this year will be on the ground in Zambia on Friday, March 16.
