About me

I’m Z. I grew up in Manchester and then moved to Southampton to study physio. I qualified in 1998 and spent 10 years working in Southampton. At the same time I was involved in an organisation to help Christians allied health professionals think about how their faith related to their work.

In January 2009 I moved to Uganda to work as a physiotherapist at a government hospital with a Christian organisation called AIM International. I spent the first few months in orientation and language study and then started work at the hospital in June 2009.
