Heide is a Registered Nurse and arrived in Mozambique in 2002 to serve after completing Portuguese language immersion training in Portugal. She also acquired specialty training in tropical medicine, which ideally suited her for work in the tropics. She is the Director of the Health & Nutrition Program and her leadership and experience is invaluable.
What she says about herself:
“I have seen and experienced the powerful healing value of rehabilitating the sick, the handicapped and the rejected by introducing therapeutic modalities into their daily routine and environment. My vision is to have a safe place of refuge to bring hope and joy to children where they can learn, play and live in freedom.”
