HOW WE'VE HELPED NKOARANGA

Gilchrist Services has been able to assist our partner in Tanzania thanks to the generosity of our donors.

To date, the donations from Gilchrist and GBMC staff and volunteers as well as local foundations and organizations have funded: 

  • salary of the hospital's first palliative care physician
  • staff salaries,
  • volunteer stipends,
  • scholarships for children,
  • office expenses,
  • outreach expenses,
  • emergency housing repairs,
  • equipment for the Kids Club for children with HIV,
  • hospital stays for symptomatic patients
  • and other needs.

More recently, a Toyota Land Cruiser, paid for through the generosity of Gilchrist donors, was purchased and outfitted to serve as an ambulance to transport patients from the villages Nkoaranga serves across rutted, unpaved roads and to the hospital for treatment. The new ambulance was officially put into operation in Fall 2014.
