Pre visit – Preparations

Preparations for an international visit begins almost a year before the team depart. From coordinating the visit with KCMC to obtaining business visas and preparing the donated equipment for shipment, hundreds of hours of work are completed behind the scenes to ensure the visit is a success.

This year, Northumbria donated crucial medical equipment, including several fetal monitors and a laparoscopic stack. This equipment was shipped one week before the team departed to ensure it was in Tanzania in time for their arrival.
