In June, Henry returned from Tanzania, where both the hospital and community health are progressing. We are working with major partners to develop the hospital for poor women and children and use it to expand family medicine in Tanzania.
Thanks to a generous donor from our home church (Grace Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Virginia), we now have detailed architectural drawings and bills of quantities detailing the price of both the women and children’s ward building and the education building for the hospital. While the five-story buildings will together cost two million dollars, our first phase will consist of one story of the education building and two stories of the hospital building. This will allow us to become a district-level teaching hospital. With our academic partner Hubert Kairuki University, we will begin only the second family medicine residency training in Tanzania. We are asking individuals and families to donate and have rooms, wards, or entire buildings named after those they want to honor.
