Orphans Foundation Fund is coordinating a child health program in cooperation with Mount Meru Hospital and support from volunteer doctors from the United States of America led by Dr. James Lace. Volunteer doctors came to Tanzania and provide free medical services to the communities at village dispensaries.
Orphans Foundation Fund has been coordinating the community mobilization activities, linking with Mount Meru Hospital , identifying the health needs from the community in Olkokola and Lengast villages ahead of volunteer doctors missions to these villages.
In 2013 three mobile clinics in the Maasai village of Olkokola were conducted . From January to April 2014, one session has been in Olkokola and one session in Lengast village. The number of children who had benefit from the services has increased from 200-450 in one medical session. In these sessions children received the diagnosis, treatment and referrals. The child health program was a big success and we hope the doctors will come back to Tanzania soon.
