Notes
A description of the 15 May 2017 visit to Mtandi Clinic near Masasi by the Rev. Geoffrey Monjesa, development officer for the Anglican diocese of Masasi, and a delegation of Canadian volunteers and staff of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), the relief and development arm of the Anglican Church of Canada. "Built in the 1990s as part of Partners for Life, a PWRDF project to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic sweeping sub-Saharan Africa" (p. 10) the clinic has since taken on "an expanded role, becoming a focal point of a PWRDF project on nutrition and food security that emphasized maternal and newborn health. Through this project (known locally as the Community Health Improvement Plan, or CHIP), a maternity ward was built up, and PWRDF provided a regular stock of drugs and medical supplies" (p. 10). "Due to the success of the CHIP project, which wrapped up in March 2017, a second larger project called All Mothers and Children Count (AMCC) was initiated in 2015. It will run until 2020, and aims to provide medicine and education to several dispensaries, both within Masasi and neighbouring Tunduru" (p. 11). "According to the Rev. Linus Buriani, who works closely with Monjesa on an AMCC project currently underway, the challenge lies in building the local population's confidence in the dispensaries and clinics" (p. 11).
"In May [2017], staff writer Andre Forget travelled to Tanzania with a delegation from the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund to visit projects supported by the Anglican Church of Canada. He files these stories and photos, the second of a three-part series".
