So where do I begin? It has been one solid week since I started at the Beit CURE Hospital in Zambia, and the whirlwind of activity has not relented. First, I think I should tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Kimberly Bennett, and I’m a Canadian who originally came to rural Zambia in February to work with a small farming association as an advocacy advisor.
Unfortunately, my contract with that organization came to an end in July, but I was very keen on staying and working in Zambia because I love it here so much. My prayers were answered when I got an email from the executive director of the Beit CURE Hospital to come in for an interview for a new position they were creating centering on Advocacy and Communications. And six weeks later, I’m here in the big city, Lusaka, as the new advocacy and Zambia field communications specialist with the Beit CURE Hospital!
