Our project 'The Mobile Sonographer' has started: the first application for mobile ultrasound scan is in and promised. The Himo Health Center recently applied for a mobile ultrasound device. It wants thereby expanding the pregnancy checks in the surrounding rural areas by ultrasound, which is not available there at the moment.

The Himo district is mainly agricultural, with many villages where ultrasound scans maternity care is not available at this time. Once the mobile ultrasound is available and up and running, we hope to benefit no less than 60 villages. Our board supporter Sjan de Weert is currently busy looking for suitable equipment. We hope to make a purchase soon and receive the device as soon as possible to be transported to Tanzania. The ultrasounds will be performed by Jackline Shirma, who we here under our project 'Adopt an Ultrasoundist'. The Mount Meru Foundation is happy with the upcoming expansion of maternity care in the vicinity of Himo. We will keep you informed!
