Healthcare Education

Ruth tries to return annually to Dodoma and has taught on forgiveness, family life and healthcare. She tries to visit those in the church and community who are sick while she is there.

More recently Ruth is seeking to find a way forward for the self-care treatment of chronic health conditions. There is 1 doctor per 50,000 population in Tanzania and 1 doctor per 440 population in UK.. So it is very important that people are aware how to make informed healthy choices about how to live and have the support and knowledge they need to do this.

Tanzania (UK) Trust has embarked on a way forward to develop a local programme of trained church health volunteers who will visit those in the church and community who are sick/ have chronic health conditions and enable them to change their lifestyle and choices so that they have a better quality of life and healthier outcomes.
