Water is the lifeline of any community. In some areas of Zimbabwe, especially those far from city resources, deep water wells can be the only answer. JourneyPartners works to provide dry areas of the country in which we work with access to clean water. We've also worked with clinics to install water purification projects that can run on a 12-volt car battery and table salt.
JourneyPartners has a long standing history with Sanyati Baptist Hospital. Based out of Sanyati, Zimbabwe, the hospital has six outlying clinics. These clinics provide vital care to areas where medical help would otherwise be hours away. Each year we aim to bring medical supplies, birthing kits, and baby hats to support the hospital's huge undertaking.
Last year in 2012, JourneyPartners had the privilege of working in Burure to construct a two room block of a secondary school. This school is fed from a primary school with over 1000 students and is working out of outdoor "sheds." Exposed to the elements, the students struggle to maintain focus as the teachers write on concrete slabs anchored into the ground.
