More Help at Hanga Health Center from Italy

A group of students of medical doctors from Italy by the name Students Without Frontiers have shown interest to work with and help health services in Tanzania. The group has signed contract service with Hanga Health Center and Namanyere hospital in Sumbawanga, southwest of Tanzania. At Hanga the contract was made in this November by a mutual signing of it by Abbot Thadei Mhagama, OSB, the abbot of Hanga Abbey and Dr. Patricia D. Matteo from Italy, a representative of the Italian Students Without Frontiers. With the service of surgery and blood transfusion coming it will be a great leap in serving people particularly women in labor and anemic children.
From Italy Dr. Patricia was accompanied by two students of medical doctorate: Gaia Russo and Sara Riggi. After a month of stay at Hanga a farewell party was held for the three visitors early November.
We thank them for their willingness to help the needy in Tanzania.
