Zambia Project

What's Included


Join Maranatha in Zambia and work at the new Bethal Clinic in Chipata.

On this project we will be laying blocks on a new clinic next to the Bethal Church. The surrounding community has 16 villages with a community of over 10,000 people. It’s a long walk to the nearest overloaded clinic creating a big gap in health care, especially for maternity cases and basic medical needs. In 2014 the church members began planning and praying about building a clinic on this site. In faith they began collecting building materials like bricks. The active Bethal congregation has started four more churches, began a preschool in their new One Day Church, and eagerly looks forward to impacting their community through this vital clinic.

Depending on the number of volunteers and the skills and interests they bring, this group could also reach out into the community through activities like children’s ministry programs, medical clinics and health education. Volunteers will fly into Lilongwe, Malawi.

At the end of the project, the group will enjoy a safari excursion in the South Luangwa National Park.
