TWOAT is pleased to report that a suitable candidate has been found to be the outreach worker at the epilepsy Clinic which we are funding at Berega Hospital in Tanzania with money donated during our Christmas Appeal. He will be travelling to Kilimanjaro Hospital to undergo the training. You can see a photo of him on our web site. We have provided £2,000 to the hospital to cover the clinic’s first year including salary and training costs plus associated travel expenses.
