Following on from very successful medical trips in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 where we were able to provide simple health care training to 30 plus volunteers, the Health Centre has been open for 6 months.
The situation in Tanzania is dire. There is only one doctor per 50000 of population, the lowest rate in Africa. This compares to 1 per 440 of population in the UK. A simple medicine may cost as much as a months food supply. There is no such thing as free medical care.
This has been an ambitious project for which the initial set up cost was £95,000. We have raised in excess of £120,000 for the build. Support is now needed for staff costs and equipment.
We’d like to invite you to our annual trip to Tanzania this June, 2019 for 2 weeks. We would like to especially invite two groups of people:
- people with medical specialities that can benefit the Health Centre knowledge base/clinical skills, as well as train up local Doctors
- people to build up our partnership with the Dodoma Church/Prayer Warriors
It will be fun and spiritually building and as always: an adventure!
The cost has gone up as the flight costs have risen and we are also looking at possibly doing the Dar-Dodoma trips by small plane to save time and stress!
Please pray about this invitation to join us, Ruth (07854688373). Application Form download TZ trip invite 2019
