Princess Rukasha is a medical student in Australia who went to Murambinda Mission Hospital in November 2016 for her student elective. Her report gives details of the enthusiastic traditional welcome she received, good teaching and sharing of skills by the nurses. She observed the wide range of serious illnesses facing the people of Zimbabwe and Manicaland in particular by visiting Buhera Hospital and some of the outlying clinics. The Friends of Murambinda Hospital supports the provision of health care throughout the Buhera District not just in the hospital so the information that Princess has been able to supply to the trustees is very helpful in formulating our decision making on the allocation of scarce funds.
