Dear Friends,

The title of this year’s annual report was inspired by our global family, which includes the women and children we serve, field staff, community health workers, volunteers, medical personnel, donors, and our many partners. As a family, we can learn so much from one another about respect, dignity, and love. I’m proud of CMMB’s (CATHOLIC MEDICAL MISSION BOARD) family and our many accomplishments highlighted in this report. Before you turn the page, I’d like to share some highlights:

Veronica Makiko is a mother of three children – two sons and a daughter. They live in Mushonto Village, in Western Province, Zambia.

An estimated 81 percent of the population in the district where Veronica lives does not have access to safe water[1]. Every morning, Veronica and her children used to wake up at 5:00 am and walk more than two kilometers, which took about three hours, to reach the nearest stream to fetch water for the family. Cattle and goats also use the stream to drink and bathe, and the water is highly contaminated.
