At the end of September, a Tanzanian delegation visited the Flemish Thomas More University of Applied Sciences. One of the visitors was Dr. Heriel, with whom we work. An excellent opportunity to discuss the mobile ultrasound project in Karatu with him.

Every year, a number of Thomas More midwife and nursing students go on an internship at the Lutheran hospital in Karatu. Let this be the hospital with which our foundation collaborates to offer mobile ultrasound in rural areas.

At the invitation of the university college and in collaboration with the Flemish Foundation Misingi vzw (active in the outskirts of Karatu), three Tanzanian partners were able to come to Belgium.

In a cold and rainy Turnhout, we gathered in the Italian restaurant Il gusto for this international meeting: representatives of the university college, the Tanzanian delegation, Vincent van Misingi vzw and Lucie, Annalied and Saja on behalf of our foundation.

Soon a hundred were asked and plans were made. Immersed for a moment in the Tanzanian cosiness, we imagined ourselves almost below the equator.

It was an inspiring meeting that strengthened our resolve to move forward at full speed after a difficult period. With our local pioneers such as Dr. Heriel, we continue to work hard for the mothers and children in Tanzania.
