So last Thursday Colin Ferguson, The director of The Leprosy Mission Northern Ireland, Brian Atkins, Business Advisor to DCT, Chris Dennison, CK volunteer, and I got the opportunity to visit the village of Kawawa. The village of Kawawa is one of eight that is involved with Hombolo Hospital Community Health Education Program. Hombolo Hospital was historically a famous leprosy hospital in this region. Currently the programs main goal is to educate individuals about early signs of leprosy as well as HIV, and other STD’s. The villagers put on a demonstration of the community health education at work as well as songs about the different diseases.

    Sounds like you are really getting to see a lot of the Diocese. I’ve never been there. How far a drive was it from Dodoma?
