Nursing in Tanzania

Update posted by Daniella Gardner On Nov 07, 2015

At this stage, it is still yet to be confirmed, but a volunteer company called 'Days for Girls' is willing to donate 50 sanitary packs for us to take with us to Tanzania. Each pack weighs 400g and allows 1 woman enough sanitary supplies to last them 2 years of normal menstruation. If we are able to get these supplies we will be able to educate women/adolescent girls in the community as to how to use these sanitary packs and the importance of menstrual hygiene. This will stop women from missing out on valuable days of school or work.

As students, we will be teaching older members of the community how to make a simple rehydration solution for those suffering from dehydration due to excessive vomitting/diarrhoea. This will include simple accessible ingredients such as salt, sugar and water.

Hand hygiene is going to be one of our major focuses. By supplying soap, building a 'tippy tap' in the community, and educating the people - we are hoping to reduce the spread of infectious diseases within the community.
