The Foundation has found Regina Namumba , a highly experienced sonographer with whom the Foundation worked fruitfully at the Mount Meru hospital in Arusha , willing to provide intensive hands-on training to our graduate sonographer Jackline Shirima. Regina now works in Tabora at the Mamola hospital 800 km away from Arusha.

It can be noted that due to the corona, testing of the ultrasound devices to be purchased has been delayed and the purchase of the ultrasound devices will take place at the beginning of 2022.

The devices have now been ordered but will be paid for in early 2022.
