    The main objective for this years trip to Africa was pretty incredible. My wonderful man and their charity @zbfoundation have built up an entire community in the town of Ngong in Kenya over the last 5 years. Yesterday marked the opening of the first maternity clinic in the area, and an overwhelming number of grateful, smiling faces. All thanks to @sophie_loof 💙 They’re in constant need of volunteers in the antenatal department to broaden and develop their education. Please do reach out if you want to join this wonderful community of midwives, doctors and beautiful babies! To say the work these guys do is inspiring, would be an understatement. I’m so incredibly proud and humbled to be part of their journey. Onwards and upwards 🙌🏼 @manszelmerlow @bjorkmantennis @kasperskarrie
