Tonga Translators


Zimba Mission Hospital is pleased to now offer a Translator Program, meeting the wishes of previous volunteers who found it difficult to communicate without being fluent in the local language, Tonga. While some Zambians speak English, the majority of our patients come from various local villages and only understand Tonga, or other Zambian dialects. We might only have one or two patients a day that speak English.

We have a few local translators available to work for a fee, about US $10/day.
