During my time in Tanzania, I saw and helped treat many people affected by these tropical and infectious diseases. I have seen many children who did not receive proper medical attention for their treatable diseases die way too young. The clinic pharmacy rapidly runs out of much-needed medication (e.g. amoxicillin, chloramphenicol, doxycycline, mefloquine) and the laboratory and medical equipment currently being used is breaking. All of the money raised would go toward life-saving medication and purchasing new equipment so the clinic can continue to diagnose patients and provide quality treatment at affordable costs.

The clinic is supported by the New Hope Initiative, a philanthrophic organization that sponsors community projects in India, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sierra Leone, as well as Tanzania. If you would like more information about NHI or would like to donate via their page, click here.
