Our healthcare center is to be located in Kahama, Tanzania (Shinyanga Region). This relatively small town is located in the north-west of Tanzania, about 550 kilometers from Dodoma. The city is known for its goldmine (Buzwagi Gold Mine) which is located just next to Kahama.

Why Kahama?

Kahama Tanzania

 

The goldmine creates employment opportunities and therefore many people tend to move to Kahama. Currently, the region faces a shortage in healthcare facilities as the population grows continuously. The established facilities are stated-owned and most of them lack the needed equipment which impedes adequate diagnoses. This results in the necessity for many patients to travel to other hospitals in other districts which is a long and risky trip for them in weak conditions.


Martus Foundation aims to contribute to the current healthcare system by establishing in Kahama. By collaborating with existing hospitals, we want to make sure that all people in the region will get the treatment they need.
