Money always makes things a bit tricky when working in majority world cultures. When a volunteer or missionary first starts in his work abroad, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the great need and poor living conditions of those in the area. The first inclination is to just indiscriminately give money to help alleviate suffering. While this motive is pure, sometimes good natured generosity can have destructive consequences.

Damon & Lisa Matacchiera live and work in Zambia, Africa with their six children. Their extensive time on the field has culminated in the formation of Hope Zambia. This family’s motivation in everything they do comes from their desire to love God and love people. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about this cause!
