Famine. Isolation. Friends dying of AIDS. Broken toaster. Just another week for a mission volunteer in Africa.
Seven Days follows the astonishing experiences of Fiona Dixon-Thompson in a remote Zambian village, where she is assigned to support the community by caring for orphans and vulnerable children. In her search for missing schoolgirl Precious Simasiku, Fiona faces a barrage of obstacles arising from the local HIV/AIDS epidemic. Armed only with raw determination and previous job experience as a plumber in South Australia, anything can happen.
Thought-provoking, funny and inspiring, Seven Days is an uncompromising insight into the realities of aid work and the impact that committed people can make to many lives.
