Kyamwamwe village community in Rorya district for a number of years has been challenged with health services to access medical care where her people have to walk between 8-10km to get this medical services. It is big challenge especially to women, children, physically challenged people (PCP) as well as elderly.
For years now, many have lost their lives or women gave birth along the way seeking medical attention while others decided to give birth at home without or with little care while others don’t go to hospital due to distance especially during night.
Tanzania association of environmental engineers (TAEEs) being an NGO working in WASH, Climate smart environment, livelihood support and health strives to uplift and cover health struggles in Tanzania. TAEEs has spotted this gap and allotted her livelihood support through health window to anchor and reduce such challenges and assist to close the gap to these villagers.
