This past week, I (JP Bervoets, North Star Alliance Special Projects Intern) drove from Johannesburg, South Africa, to Beitbridge, Zimbabwe to visit one of our Roadside Wellness Centres. Close to the Zimbabwean border along the N1 (a route familiar to many Southern African drivers), I snapped a few photos of the surrounding area (before settling in for a lengthy late-night border crossing). While the drive up was a long one, the road, dotted with Baobab trees and transport trucks, provided more than enough to look at. Further, the warm welcome I received at our Wellness Centre in Beitbridge the next morning made the journey more than worthwhile.
Over the next week I’ll be posting updates from the trip including photos and videos from our wellness center, and from the exciting workshops series we hosted there. Stay up to date by visiting our blog, or subscribing to our RSS Feed!
