One week before flying to Zambia

In one week time, I will be in the plane flying to Lusaka, in Zambia to join Care International team for the Live Well programme. Over the last weeks, I went through a large amount of emotions… but I must say that today, I am pretty excited and I really look forward to meeting the local team and partners as well as my co-volunteer, Kirsty from GSK Montrose. Thanks to many calls I received from members or past members of the Live Well project, I now better understand this programme supported by GSK, Barclays and the NGO Care International.  It is quite an expected programme through the healhcare landscape as it is aiming at developing a business model to improve access to healthcare products for local zambians. And after the great 3 days training we got early june with the Pulse team, I feel re-energized and overall, not alone to live this coming challenge. We are a great pool of volunteers that will live such a once-lifetime experience… at such point that we already linked all together in the most natural way I’ve ever seen! It is now time to pack… and I will try to bring some chocolates with me as I am strongly addicted to it! Next week will be the last days to say goodbye to colleagues in Belgium on the Vaccines site and friends around…The picture is a map I received and is quite helpful to better locate Zambia for those who may have never heard about this country!


  1. Enjoy and come back still better than you are already today. We desperatly need people like you who are really open to other cultures and who have a true international mindset.
