Lydia Davids

International Ministry Coordinator

Lydia Davids is a health professional with a background in public health, social sciences, and dietetics and has spent most of her professional life integrating these. She is a South African completing her Master’s in Public Health from the University of Cape Town (where she previously worked as a facilitator of MBChB students). She has most recently left her position in the HR department at Cornell University to join our team. As one who grew up and lived as a healthcare worker in Sub-Saharan Africa herself, Lydia is enthusiastic about her role as an International Ministry Coordinator focusing on Sub-Saharan Africa (with a Col 3:17&23 approach). Lydia is currently located in the United States with her loving husband and their incredible 7-year daughter. She is deeply grateful to God for the opportunity to be part of IHS's mission and vision.
