September 30, 2017– Significant progress has begun on construction of the Maruku Pediatric Ward. Local technicians and a foundation builder have been chosen, the Bukoba District Council Engineer has completed a site inspection, and the site area is being cleared. This is proceeding according to the plan laid out by the AHEAD local committee for oversight and construction of the ward. In addition to these activities, dental equipment shipped from the US has now arrived in Bukoba, and AHEAD’s Dr. Donna Williams Ngirwa will very shortly be making a trip to provide dental training using the new equipment, accompanied by her husband and native son of Bukoba Dr. Apolinary ‘Yonga’ Ngirwa (he was born at this medical dispensary).
