Steve Foster, left, has lived and served in Angola since 1978. A fully Board Certified Canadian surgeon, Foster and his classy wife Peggy over the last thirty-six years raised four children, save thousands from early death, and continue to inspire tomorrow’s healthcare personnel in this stark nation. Steve Foster was my mentor at Kalukembe Hospital when I first arrived in Angola in the 1990s. Today he and I are on site together back at Kalukembe, where Foster is mentoring Petra Schmid. A Swiss national, medical student, and earnest Christian, Petra possesses those rare, Foster-like qualities of vision, faith, endurance, and social graces that should reassure us all that, as Samwise Gamgee said to Frodo Baggins, “There’s still some good left in this world… and it’s worth fighting for!”
