Sengerema Hospital is run by Sister Marie Jose Voeten. It provides health care for a large number of people in the Mwanza region of Tanzania. The hospital has links with the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. A lot of medical students from this institute visit Sengerema to help out for a few months and in the mean time learn about health care in the tropics. Two of my nieces were amongst them. This is how I came to learn about Sengerema & Sister Maire Jose when I visited a niece while I was in Tanzania for a safari trip.
The contrast between the luxury conditions in the lodges in the National parks and the circomstances in this hospital was quite staggering.
