The Original volunteers continue to send medical students who are currently benefiting from this rural health post set up by gaining some experiences and helping the communities.
Hannah, Pippa, Amar and Philip worked and enjoyed this community with their local health post which is progressively improving.
Since they are students they encouraged them, worked with them to project the yard from stray animals, like horses, cows sheep and goats. The carried out an intensive health education and health survey in the Mbosha village.
Hanna and Pippa also stayed in this community and worked with them on HIV/AIDS education which was a challenging project. It turned out that most of them had not heard about HIV/AIDS and prevention openly for the first time, and had been told not to talk of condoms.
They were supported with some essential drugs and gloves. Philip, another volunteer worked on development, good record keeping, and management in the health post. Women were encouraged to keep on with the project despite the slow nature of the progress being made. We hope that as donations continue to happen, we will keep on with the work especially the improving of the condition of the building.
Luke one of the volunteers who came in only for two weeks was very satisfied and challenged with what the poor women could do just to help the entire community and for the future generations as their objective. He declared that he will be coming back in June 2013 to work and set up many things that can improve the health post and the health of the community.
We would appreciate any additional or new assistance to this project. May God bless you especially the charitable hands that gives cheerfully, willingly and for the sake of humanity.
