Crossing the Savanna
There comes a point in everyone’s life when they must cross over a certain threshold. They are faced with a difficult decision to give up or to continue onward, knowing that the road ahead will be challenging and that there is no going back.
For Karen ReMine, that point came in the Zambian Savanna on her first medical mission trip deep in the tribal bush region. She dreamed of eliminating apathy, helping others, and connecting people across the world. She followed that dream and founded OMNI, a non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable community improvements. Since that moment, Karen has traveled to Zambia over 47 times in thirteen years. Her courage has led to intervening cases of child abuse and domestic violence saving a battered woman and her six children.
A Journey of Courage
Karen combines a love of medicine and the desire to serve the impoverished, in often times dangerous situations in the heart of Africa. What follows is an intense and fascinating story of courage, faith, and love for others. This true story takes the reader to the depths of tribal regions seeped in centuries of witchcraft and extreme poverty. Because of her faith in God, one brave woman navigates cultures and faces superstition. Leading team after team, she heads an organization that provides education, medical care, and community support to orphaned children and vulnerable populations threatened by malaria, HIV/Aids and starvation.
Starting from the donation of what appeared to be a worthless mango grove near an illiterate farming village, Orphan Medical Network International was born, and, today, educates and medically cares for the most impoverished children in the Copperbelt region of Zambia.
