Medical support


Medical facilities in Tabora Region, even in the towns with hospitals, are limited. Any help that medical personnel from UK can give is very welcome and very much appreciated by the local staff. FUM can help in several ways.

FUM has many years experience of helping medical volunteers gain a suitable placement, find reliable accommodation and also help with the logistics of travel from UK and within Tanzania.

Volunteers can be confident that they will be very well received, will have plenty of medical responsibility and that overall it will be a great, possibly life-changing experience.

Three examples are given below but others are possible and have included dentistry and hospital equipment.
