Our mission focuses on providing medical services to people with disabilities in Southern Tanzania. Tanzania, as well as, other developing countries considers disabilities a curse and an unnecessary strain on the family resources. These children are usually discarded, disregarded and disrespected for the majority of their lives. They are given little to no access to medical care as healthy children are considered a priority given the perception of their ability to contribute to the family and society. Thus, most the families are unaware of what they should do with their disabled and deny them the basic needs, therefore many die before reaching the age of five years. Those that survive suffer in silence. With no voice.
Our mission brought individuals from a number of medical professions; occupational medicine, ophthalmology, family practice, physiotherapist, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, general surgery, disability medicine, pain management, pediatrics, pediatric surgery, psychiatry and dental, to treat those with special needs.
