This was our second successful trip to Tanzania. We returned to Mwanza and continued our work with IHP. We saw over 100 patients in clinic and performed eight gynecologic surgeries. We continued our health education program with Dr. Hussain speaking at one of the local mosques.

Elaine and Davan helped Paula Lofstrom (of IHP) with fundraising for the hospital by making napkins and tablecloths out of Masai fabrics which Paula sells in her store. They also created some O.R. drapes. In addition, we participated in training an O.R. technician named Maria providing a means of employment for her so she may provide for her family.
