U.S. Church Wants to Resume Zimbabwe AIDS Work
September 13, 2010
Police in Harare have detained six workers at an AIDS orphanage supported by a California church, claiming they were operating an unlicensed clinic and dispensing medicine without a pharmacist's supervision. The six, five Americans and one Zimbabwean, are due in court Monday, according to their lawyer in Zimbabwe.
Robert C. Scott, an Allen Temple member, AIDS activist and doctor who died last year, started the church's work in Zimbabwe after he and other members attended an international AIDS conference in South Africa. On a trip to neighboring Zimbabwe, they were moved by what they saw at the Mother of Peace Orphanage just outside Harare.
