Today we welcome our new volunteer Anette from Switzerland!
She is going to work as a physiotherapist at Mawenzi Hospital in Moshi for six weeks and will stay in our volunteer hostel.
Mawenzi Hospital started in 1920 as a small military dispensary for German soldiers before it became a hospital in 1956. With about 300 beds, 152 nurses and more than 20 doctors, the hospital is very big and busy. The clinic’s services include eye, dental, ultrasonic, physiotherapy, laboratory, general surgery, psychiatry, maternity, mother and child care and family planning. The workers speak English which makes Mawenzi Hospital a very good practical training placement for volunteers with medical experience.
