Mission Mkongo is over and a complete success. We have spent 3 busy days at the local school and dispensary providing medical assessments and services to over 1400 children and patients. The community welcomed us with open arms and made our stay a most fulfilling experience.
Mkongo is located in the hill areas west of the city of Songea. It’s a beautiful location but very remote. There is no running water or electricity so it was a big adjustment for the team. Despite the challenges, we ate well, we showered in creative ways and got the job done.
We have had some minor setbacks with cramps, and upset tummies but those affected are on the mend and we are a happy crew again.
Onward to Mbinga and Mbangamao.
