Who we help


What we do

We bring people, ideas and materials together for structural changes that contribute to better medical care for the people of Tanzania.

  • Medical
    equipment

    Among other things we supply, medical equipment and instruments, computers and medical materials that are difficult to obtain in Tanzania.

  • Sustainable
    Services

    We advise and implement concrete solutions for drinking water supply, sewage treatment and energy supply, for example to be used for the cooling of medication. We also take care of the purchase and installation of solar panels and the purchase and maintenance of tools.

  • Knowledge

    We contribute to the training of doctors, nurses and laboratory staff, both financially and practically. The Morogoro Support Foundation subsidizes training to become a practicing doctor or nurse. Medical teams from the Netherlands travel to Tanzania at least once a year to carry out more complex operations that also serve as 'training on the job'. Next to this the Dutch teams also give medical advice at a distance.

  • Facilitate

    A number of outposts are controlled from the St. Kizito hospital. The Morogoro Support Foundation regularly sends specialists to develop and realize new projects together with local groups.

  • Realize

    We initiate improvement of hospital care and facilities. In 2013 a new maternity clinic was opened and the operating room and various nursing departments were modernized. The installation of improved sewerage, water pipes and lighting has also been realized.


Donation

With your financial contribution you will help support improvement of healthcare in a large area, and for 120,000 Tanzanian citizens. With your help the St Kizito hospital in Mikumi and the St. Agnes clinic in Lugono will be able to realize this goal.

Your contribution will not only benefit acute medical care. The residents of Mikumi and surrounding villages will gain access to good health education, which in our opinion every citizen of the world should be able to count on.

The Office

Education

Our doctors and nurses go to share their knowledge with the locals about twice a year. Both local employees and doctors work with great enthusiasm on:

  1. practical training toward the execution of more complex procedures
  2. support in improving hygiene
  3. help with the development and implantation of protocols
  4. response to the need/request of the professionals in Tanzania.

On their return they share their experiences with colleagues in the Netherlands and stimulate understanding and insight into the situation in Tanzania

The foundation also uses the technology of MDLinking. Health professionals use their mobile phone, tablet or PC to work together with their colleagues in Tanzania. This facilitates the sharing of knowledge and skills online via peer-to-peer education.
