Every year a small team from The Meeting House, a church in Canada, travels to Africa. Last year, they came to Bulawayo to spend time learning about Mennonite Central Committee partnering organizations there.

Photographer Paul Bettings who travels the world working on projects with the likes of World Vision, provided media support to the The Meeting House team in Bulawayo. He wrote in his blog:

The strategy that The Meeting House has adopted is not to raise funds to run their own projects, or build their own schools, but to raise funds and partner with what people are already doing there – specifically the Mennonite Central Committee.

One of such MCC partners in Bulawayo is Mtshabezi Hospital:
