"CMMB Volunteers" a team to help the CATHOLIC MEDICAL MISSION BOARD INC
CMMB focuses on a holistic approach to community health and create sustainable programs through working directly with the local communities.
Currently we are working on a child protection project, which strives to provide care and support for vulnerable children, such as those living on the streets, and reintegrate them into families. Zambia has an estimated 1.3 million orphans, 690,000 of whom have lost one or both parents to AIDS. The combined effects of poverty and HIV/AIDS have reduced families' ability to positively care for and provide for the safety, health, and well-being of their children. We will be working with the local communities and government to create a network of care for these children and strengthen family structures.
We feel extremely grateful for the opportunity to help those that need it most. It is the little things that we may take for granted that can mean the most to someone in need. We truly believe that CMMB's volunteer program benefits the communities it serves and would like to see this program continue in the future. To do this, we ask for your support.
