Healthcare for the underserved: Tanzania 2019 IVHQ

From Wes Wattenberger

Service to the medically underserved. I am called to provide aid to those who are not capable of receiving medication and treatment of preventable disease and illness. That journey and passion starts with Tanzania!

Do you know someone that feels incapable of serving a cause they are passionate about due to the stress of finances or suffocating debt? Were you once that person yourself? I want to be in a position someday to provide for these expenses myself, and bless others with that financial gift. As of right now, I’m on a journey to become a Physician Assistant and work specifically in medically underserved communities. Unfortunately, I’m forced to rely on the generous donations of others. That is why my sincere hope is that you believe in what I believe in and are willing to support me in this endeavor. 

Did you know that Tanzania’s leading causes of death are from diarrheal diseases, neonatal disorders, and complications with HIV and tuberculosis? Many of the leading causes of death in Tanzania currently afflict young children and babies. These issues are preventable. However, because the per capita income is a mere $2.74 and access to valuable personal healthcare education/supplies is lacking, many preventable illnesses are detrimental to the life expectancy in this country. I will be committing to a week of service here to get my feet wet in medical mission work. This week will prepare me to return to the mission field after I obtain the proper education to provide more sophisticated heathcare services. Thank you so much for your support
