It was an absolute honour and privilege to be able to serve under Cosmos HealthCare to deliver professional development to Community Health Workers in Papua New Guinea. All staff members of Cosmos were friendly, organised and professional from my first interaction with the Medical Director via email, the admin ladies for logistics; and then CEO Jason during the trip. From the minute I left home, to when my feet touched back on Australian soil, I felt honoured, safe, and part of the team. Interacting with the Community Health Workers was both humbling and rewarding. Hearing their stories around the communities they served stirred my heart deeply. A real highlight for me was to see them hear, embrace and respond to the principles of health promotion in their communities. I'm so excited to hear the difference their messages will make in the communities they are serving. Thank you Cosmos HealthCare for allowing me to serve with your organisation - and I can't wait to go again!

Cosmos HealthCare are passionate about helping those in need. As a regular donor, I am always kept updated on where or how my donation is being used to help. Jason (CEO) has really made me feel a part of the team and with that I feel blessed to share such strength and happiness through their giving. God will provide everything that is needed and we see his work through Cosmos HealthCare. Continue to spread the joy. Thank you Cosmos for such beautiful giving.

The opportunities to volunteer with Cosmos Healthcare in Zimbabwe alongside the Sizoluwethu Primary Health team and in Papua New Guinea with the Primary Health Professional Development team have been instrumental in developing my confidence and faith in what God wants to do through us as Christians. I recommend that if you feel God is calling you into cross cultural work that you undertake volunteer opportunities and allow God to refine you.

My wife and I joined a Cosmos HealthCare short-term medical team that visited Zimbabwe a few years ago. At the time we were new to overseas mission work and had been asking God for an opportunity to go. During the trip we learned so much about the needs of those in the developing world, and our hearts were burdened for those less fortunate. Since that time, we began to pursue long-term mission and are now on the road towards this happening. We consider our time with Cosmos a vital stepping stone in our journey and highly recommend them to anyone interested in or exploring cross-cultural mission.

Having volunteered in India as an Enrolled Nurse, and most recently as a Registered Nurse in Zimbabwe, I can only speak praise for the work Cosmos Healthcare does, and for what Sizolwethu continues to do, for people in need. During my Zimbabwe trip, my faith in God grew and was strengthened on what can only be described as a less than smooth silky road.

I found the trip immensely humbling. The people of Zimbabwe suffer terribly under extreme poverty and still manage to be cheerful, polite and kind. They do not complain and maintain a sense of pride, humour and hard work. It was a privilege to work with them and try and help in a small way. We can all learn a lot from their daily attitudes to a situation they have no control over. They blew me away and I was very lucky to be in a position to go to Zimbabwe and would love to go back. The organisation of Cosmos and how well cared for we were was fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of doing voluntary work to join the Cosmos team.
