Update on Nurse Arrival

The nurses for ZMM have to come in one day in advance of the rest of the team in order to sit for an interview with the nursing council of Zambia. We already had several nurses hear, but the remaining nurses were traveling together and got stuck last night in Joberg. For some reason they were not allowed to board their scheduled flight.

In any case, the nurses were able to take a flight out at 10:50 this morning and have apparently arrived in Lusaka (at last word a few of them had emerged from the immigration line.) We have also heard that one piece of luggage did not arrive, but we are not sure.

The group is however safely on Zambian soil and is headed for a late afternoon visit with the nursing council.

The remainder of the team will arrive tomorrow if all goes well.

Thanks for your interest.
