A wave of generosity on lake Tanganyika

11 July 2014

Several groups have brought into Greystoke vital medicines for our local community lately. It has been good news for Nurse Elizabeth and the many patients she attends to.

Pack for a Purpose gave good advice to Nowela and Peter from the UK who came out with some baby clothes and accessories.

Don and Ellie of San Francisco with their 3 children had an amazing day handing over a whopping 35kg worth of medicine to the clinic and finishing off with a school tour and game of soccer with the local children. Ann and Russ went along as Ann was a nurse in a previous life and Russ was a lawyer with a pharmaceutical company so both wanted an insight to local facilities and forms of treatment.

Then we had Susan and her daughter whose package of antibiotics and syringes had been prepared by Doctors Without Borders and translated into Kiswahili.

Hassan and our guides take great pleasure showing guests around in Katumbi and sharing its inhabitant’s daily lives which people find to be very rewarding and eye-opening.

Nomad would like to thank all of these guests for their considerate contributions and for taking time away from our comfortable camp to see the reality of life here on the shores of Lake Tanganyika.
