In 2021, the board consisted of the following members: Y. Visser, chairman (as of 21-10-2021), M. Visser, vice-chairman, H. de Boer, secretary, treasurer vacancy, E. Leyten, A. vd Lecq , S. de Jong and O. Langezaal. In 2021, the MSF only met twice due to corona. As a result, again no people traveled from MSF to Tanzania. However, there has been regular mail and whats-app communication with Sr. Antusa, Dickson (administrator) and Sr. Refunds. In the period 2019-2020, 4 private persons have followed training from MSF: 1. Speransia Bunga, clinical medicine via private sponsor 2. Mathias John, building Veta via private sponsor 3. Richard John, Pharmacy, via private sponsor 4. Christian Mteme , secondary school, private sponsor. In the St. Kizito hospital, Mikumi, functioning has slowly started to improve. The salary payment was again reasonably on time. A new government hospital has also been built in Mikumi: The Mikumi Health Centre. This is still far from working well due to lack of good staff. In Lugono, the St. Agnes dispensary works under the direction of Sr. Refunds still good. MSF has been busy filling a 40 fr HC container. Two industrial washing machines, ultrasound machines, blood pressure monitors, a few bicycles, beds, bandages, medical clothing and many other items were donated. At the end of 2021, the container was not yet completely full. MSF also made a major contribution to the construction of a new water source. The old borehole barely gave any water, so that the hospital was regularly completely without water. Despite the corona restrictions, a number of gifts have been received at MSF, including the contribution from the Misses auction in Zoeterwoude and a number of private gifts.
Morning roll call in St. Kizito
In 2020, the board consisted of the following members: M. Visser, vice-chairman, H. de Boer, secretary, treasurer vacancy, E. Leyten, A. vd Lecq, S. de Jong and O. Langezaal. In 2020, the MSF only met twice due to corona. Also, no people have traveled to Tanzania from MSF. The trip booked by Henk de Boer and Harry Borst for the period May-June had expired due to corona and was converted into a voucher. However, there has been regular mail and whats-app traffic. In the period 2019-2020, 2 employees of the St. Kizito hospital and 5 private persons have followed training from MSF: 1. Jozephina Kidayi, anesthetic 2. Hedwiga Tair, upgrading nurse 3. Speransia Bunga, clinical medicine via private sponsor 4. Mathias John, building Veta through private sponsor 5. Richard John , Pharmacy, through private sponsor 6. Jackson Muhanga, building Veta, through private sponsor 7. Christian Mteme, secondary school, private sponsor. In St. Kizito hospital, Mikumi, the corona contamination was minimal. However, the number of patients had declined. The new head of the hospital since January 2019, Sr. Antusa, was busy repairing the damage caused by the previous director and the hospital is starting to recover despite the fact that there are still a lot of debts. In Lugono, the dispensary works under the leadership of Sr. Refunds very good. The water pump on the solar system is still working satisfactorily. The lighting also worked again with the new batteries. But the St. Agnes clinic in Lugono also lacks sufficient funds.

Two of CleanLease washing machines are ready in the container for shipment to Tanzania. Morogoro Support Foundation brings them - along with other material - to the St. Kizito hospital and the Agnes Clinic in the province of Morogoro. Morogoro Support Foundation has been supporting these two hospitals for over 20 years. The hospitals mainly focus on the treatment of patients with malaria, HIV and AIDS, assistance to traffic victims, supervising childbirth and care for mother and child in the maternity ward. A medical team from various hospitals, including Leiden University Medical Center and Alrijne Hospital, and other volunteers, trains local surgeons and nurses, improves and expands the facilities. The foundation has an ANBI status and does its work with the help of donations. After installation of the two donated machines, uniforms and other textiles from the St. Kizito Hospital and the Agnes Kliniek can be cleaned on site.
Departure at 10.35 am by KLM from Schiphol with Boeing 777, very large but still came off the ground. Return ticket for € 670 with only stop in Arusha for Kilimanjaro people. We were at the FQ hotel near the Dar es Salaam airport at 11pm. Customs were a bit difficult about the blood pressure monitor briefcase that we had received from the Rotary Rijnwoude, but after some explanation we were allowed to continue without paying.....
The problem of care in Morogoro has been brought to light by a publication in the magazine 50 Vitaal plus. Especially the problem that the total hospital budget is too low. 40% is paid by the government and 30% by patients.
