2020 has been a tough year for all of us. Despite these challenges, we as a foundation are still very proud of what we have achieved. Among other things, we have expanded our area, we have distributed a childrensbook about Corona in area of 80.000 inhabitants and ultrasounds were fully implented to our MamaBus. Unfortunately, laws and regulations around ultrasounds are on the verge of being severly changed in Tanzania. This might imply that Veronika is not allowed to perform ultrounds anymore on our MamaBus. While waiting for the finalized version of these new laws and regulations, we have decided to put fundraising for ultrasounds on a hold.
Such setback won't stop us. In 2020 we will be focussing on expanding our area once again. We have started a close collaboration with the Lutherian Hospital in Karatu. In 2020 we will start here with a completely new project in which we will connect 100,000 inhabitants to adequate care in rural areas. Moreover, we are involved in improving the mental health strategy throughout the entire Tanzania for the upcoming period. Driving Nurses has an advisory role in improving mental healthcare for women with severe postpartum depression and trauma of domestic violence and rape. We are thankfull for this opportunity.
We wish you all a merry christmas and the best for 2021. That 2021 may bring us more joy, health and happiness.
