Godfrey’s story. A silver lining…
I was born at Chikombedzi Mission Hospital on the 27.11.1965.
After completing high school I went on to study at the university of Zimbabwe’s medical school.
After completing my internship and a 2 year stint in the military I decided to go back to Chikombedzi to give back to the community that had raised me.
I worked as a medical officer and subsequently medical superintendent.
This was truly a satisfying period in my career.
After 4 years at the helm of the hospital I decided to explore other opportunities in Victoria Falls where I worked as a district medical officer and also opened my own private family practice until 2005 when I migrated to Australia to persue a career in general practice and skin cancer medicine.
AFADU has made a lot of differences in my community by adopting children who have been orphaned due to the HIV and AIDS scourge.Most of these children have no social supports at all and if it wasn’t for AFADU these children would have died.
AFADU has made me realise the importance of giving and supporting the underprivileged.
The success of the project has been beyond measure.
Being a product of sponsorship myself(my dad was sponsored by an american nurse) I understand the value of the sponsorship program.
It changed my family for ever. I am determined to change other underprivileged people’s lives through AFADU.
