Dr. Daniel and Dr. Priscilla Cummings


Mission: Kalukembe Hospital is a 300-bed, 100-year-old district hospital established by Swiss missionaries and now run by a national denomination, IESA. It has been over 20 years without a full-time physician, with nurses managing the many aspects of patient care. Daniel (emergency medicine) and Priscila (OBGYN) are returning to serve the people of this rural area. They worked briefly there before (2012-2013); and they are looking forward to renewing relationships and beginning new ones on the wards and in the nursing, laboratory-technician and Bible schools.
