How Dr. Lehman is Saving Lives on Africa’s Lake Tanganyika…


Just how MASSIVE?

Lake Tanganyika is:

  • the world’s second largest freshwater lake, containing nearly one fifth of all the world’s fresh water;
  • divided among four countries including Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, and Zambia; and
  • home to 12 million people!

Dr. Amy G. Lehman sums it up perfectly…

It’s the most important part of the world that you’ve never heard of.

And she should know.

Dr. Lehman is the founder of the Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic that has provided medical outreach to 350,000 people along Lake Tanganyika and counting.

Staying on the Estate; Shiwa Ng’andu, Zambia

In one of the world’s poorest countries, you would hardly expect to spend the night in luxurious accommodations.  And when these facilities are available, there is a sense of guilt that comes with indulgence.  Of all the money that is paid, very little will go to those who truly need it.

However, should you wish to base your trip from a safe and comfortable location, consider spending some time at the Shiwa Ng’andu Estate.Continue
