Heartland Woman Tells About Working in African Nursery

Heartland Woman Tells About Working in African Nursery
By: Wes Wallace
FARMINGTON, Mo. - For two months, Briana Klemp used her skills as a neonatal intensive care nurse in an HIV nursery in the African country of Malawi.  Klemp quit her job, raised money, and volunteered in a place many people wouldn't dare go.
"It was an wonderful experience," recalled Klemp. "I felt like I was supposed to go to Africa.  I had a calling."
Malawi is a developing nation with a 14-percent HIV rate.  Klemp says many of the babies she took care of were either abandoned or orphaned.
While there, she kept a blog about her experience, and says she plans to go back.
