January 2016 Update

Dear Friends of the Children of Tanzania,

Mary Kitundu writing:

Exciting days!

  1. The Children's Hospital passed government inspection, and the facility is ready to care for children!
  2. Staff are being trained for the Computerized Medical Program. This means no more paper charts, efficiency in health care. Lab and x-ray reports go directly to the doctor's running around or waiting to deliver reports.
  3. Last minute touches are being completed.
  4. Landscaping around the building is being done. Flowers abound!
  5. Fans are being installed and air conditioners in sensitive areas such as the lab and the operating room.
  6. AND the electrical company has done a final inspection. After the report arrives it will take 2-3 days to hook the buildings up with electricity and we will open for patients!

So while waiting for the electrical company to finish their job, we are starting laying out the foundation for the x-ray building and the birthing center as well as the neonatal building. Roads are being adjusted for the placement of the buildings. It is an exciting thing to watch as dreams are becoming true.

And these dreams of a center of excellence of pediatric care are coming true because of you. Thank you, thank you!

Sincerely, Mary Kitundu
President of IHP-US, and IHP-JEMA-Tanzania
