Physiotherapist Jo has been volunteering at CURE Malawi and working with cerebral palsy children for a long time now. She has been living and working with children in Africa for even longer than that. She has a huge heart for the kids and we’re sad that she’s going back to the UK, but will be praying that God blesses the work of her hands there, too.
