Project goal 2018
Project for a new Anesthesia Machine, necessary to perform safe surgery. Since the old machine started malfunctioning there’s been an urgent need for a new and modern machine.
Providing medical care for the most vulnerable groups in low resource countries in Africa. Since 2010 the main focus has been put on supporting specialist outreach visits to help reduce the global burden of surgical diseases.
Simba is a non-profit organization, with the goal to support health care facilities in Africa to help them maintain and improve their level of care for the most vulnerable groups. It was founded by former health care volunteers from The Netherlands, who used to live and work in a mission Hospital in Tanzania and is presently still run by volunteers.
For over 40 years, Dutch interns have been visiting Sengerema Designated District Hospital (SDDH). During this time, many of them have collected money for the hospital and have started and completed small projects.
Some enthusiastic former interns decided to join forces and in this way started to structurally support the SDDH. Friends of Sengerema Hospital was officially founded in August 2011.
