The true heartbeat of Zion International Mission is to transform the communities we visit by providing them with the opportunities they never imagined through the gift of an education, health care and clean water.
Who can go?
ZIMM invites people who are flexible, adaptable, healthy, possess a good sense of humor & ready to serve. We need team members who can help assemble or lift equipment, assist in preparations for events, work on days-of-events, and assist in household chores.+−Leaflet | © OpenStreetMap
