2010


Friederike Hemker

Germany / Political Science
Hours donated: 200 h

My main task was to measure as many children as possible to put them into the online database. Moreover, we started to teach the mothers how to make peanut butter, which helps to improve the health of a malnourished child. In addition to that, we did some renovations on the clinic in Anivorano and build a new kitchen on the clinic grounds, which can be used for educational sessions in the future.

I spent my two months in Anivorano doing pretty much whatever needed to get done. I helped do things like paint the clinic, organize donations, start a soccer tournament, etc. Furthermore I helped out with the malnutrition project. We did assessments, entered data, made Peanut butter, and worked to develop an education program for mothers. Feel free to email me if you have any further questions!

Hours donated: 200 h

I spent a month in Anivorano working in the daily clinic. It allowed Dr Ginette to organise regional plans in Diego, and threw us in at the deep end, which gave us a lot of opportunity to learn about medicine in a developing country. We also helped to unload the massive crate of supplies from ProjectCure. We weighed and measured children and babies, vaccinated pregnant women and were given the chance to act on our feet in more serious emergencies.

In terms of medicine we saw a lot in the clinic, from things we see all the time at home to rare tropical diseases and learnt a lot.The clinic room is definately better kitted out now as well! If there was one very simple product that would be invaluable there it would be urine dipsticks, we had a small number but they were so usefull for distinguishing between UTIs, STIs etc. I hope you will be able welcome medical students again in the future as it was extremely rewarding.

I also want to thank you for the help you gave us and for giving us the opportunity to go out there. Though I have been rubbish at keeping in contact I do really appreciate everything you have done. All three of us had an amazing experience that we will not forget and I hope we managed to help out during our time in Anivorano. I heard there was an aim to raise some ore money by Christmas and Im sure us guys in Sheffield will do our part.
