Aziz Swalehe, Songambele Hospital Administrator, wrote the following article recognizing Somgambele's continued effort to maintain a state-of-the-art facility in partnership with Tanzanian regulations. Thank you, Aziz!
Quality and Safety First
Songambele, like US health facilities are inspected to assure there is administration and health quality control. In Tanzania, inspections are done by the Ministry of Health (Government of Tanzania).These Inspections include daily work plan commitments, environmental issues, staffing performance, guidelines, rules and regulation implementation and staffing challenges.
Off to Lake Eyasi for some culture. We met with the Wahadzabe tribe , otherwise known as the bushman. We learned ( and tried to learn a few new tricks) how they hunt, and gather food to survive. The woman make carvings and beaded jewelry too. Then on to the Datoga tribe who are blacksmiths. We watched the masters thru demonstration! The metal jewelry and arrows they made were beautiful. We also tried our hand at milling corn (pardon the pun) too. They are master recyclers as they use recycled metals! Also one picture is a view from our lodge. Enjoy!
