Kivulini Hospital Maternity Africa (MA), Arusha, Tanzania
In 2011 Andrew and his team began providing free maternal healthcare at the Selian Lutheran Hospital in Arusha, Tanzania, as an interim step to building a new maternity hospital. That hospital, Kivulini, opened in June 2018. The largest project ever undertaken by Andrew and his team, Kivulini comprises a 48-bed maternity centre, a midwife training school and an obstetric fistula treatment unit. BMF will now assist MA in raising the funds required to operate Kivulini.
