In April, four volunteers travelled to Zambia for 8 days. The focus of the visit was to strengthen the links between the Clinic and the community. The I4L group brought the mobile tent to very impoverished zones in the shanty town of the Linda Province for screening in the community. The aim was to reach vulnerable and at risk families – families with HIV or where a grandmother is looking after children. A documentary crew from Ireland accompanied the volunteers.
