Day 1 – Arrival in Tanzania

After 16 hours of travel via Dubai  the team arrived in Tanzania, fresh faced and prepared for a fortnight of challenging yet rewarding work.

The drive from the airport to the hospital allowed those who had never before been to Tanzania to marvel at the beauty of Mt Kilimanjaro, which dominates the landscape.

Both new and old team members alike shared feelings of excitement, anticipation and nervousness, wondering how their time at KCMC would go.

Having visited KCMC over 20 times in the last 19 years programme manager Brenda Longstaff put all of our minds at ease, guiding us around the hospital and introducing us to her many friends/ acquaintances.
