Zimbabwe to Grand Cayman

My name is Jenny. I’m a Zimbabwean-born Australian currently travelling around the world, volunteering and working within my profession, physiotherapy.

I graduated in Perth in 2008, worked in the ‘Aussie Outback’ for 2 years and made my way back to Zimbabwe at the beginning of this year (2011) to volunteer in an HIV clinic in Harare. I spent 5 months at Newlands Clinic working with adults with HIV related neurological conditions and HIV positive children with chronic respiratory disorders.
