Short background history of Kilimatinde Hospital
The Rev Canon Ralph Banks, a missionary from Manchester, United Kingdom, founded Kilimatinde Hospital.
The Anglican Diocese of Central Tanganyika (DCT), consisting of the Dodoma and Singida regions, originally owned Kilimatinde Hospital.
Visiting the new Wards, now in use. Nurses writing patients notes.
The region is semi desert, prone to food crisis, water shortages and poverty. The peoplle are isolated from services by distance, lack of funds and lack of transport, rendering them vulnerable and at risk of early death. When patients arrive at the hospital their condition is fragile from traveling and lack of nourishment. There is a cost to treatment and often when people arrive they are unable to pay. Food is not provided at the hospital, though a charitable food fund has been set up to assist the poorest cases.
Kilimatinde Hospital relies on donations to support and to develop the provision of health care in the region.
