Hello from Tanzania! We are all doing well here in Bukoba. The sun is shining and the people are as friendly as ever!
Yesterday we visited Josiah Girls High School for the day. The headmistress was an amazing woman who has done a lot to help out all the girls at the school and the students there were fantastic as well, and very welcoming. They prepared an awesome performance for us including dancing and singing. They also invited all of us on stage to try the dances as well. Needless to say, we all looked pretty ridiculous up there but it was a lot of fun to try. A lot of the girls at the school are amazing dancers.
We also did a performance of our own. We decided to show them a traditional American dance, the Macarena. They actually loved it and we did several more times throughout the rest of our visit. All in all, it was a very fun day and definitely a place we would like to go back to if we have time.
Today, we met with Aaseem, a man from England who is involved in an organization who does a lot of charity work in Tanzania and Kenya. Together, we all went to Kagonda Hospital where we met many patients who needed prosthetic limbs and met with one of the employees there who help to make and fit these limbs for patients with deformities or amputations. We also got a tour of the hospital where we met many amazing hospital staff members as well as several patients.
Tomorrow, we are heading to Muganda Hospital where we will meet with a patient in need of a goiter operation and we have the generous opportunity to actually watch the surgery take place. We will also be heading back to Muegaza, the albino and disabled school.
Hope all is well back in Minnesota! We miss you all and will see you in a few short weeks!
BWB, specifically Laura
