Donkey 101: Davis, CA December 2&3, 2017

Several months ago, famed primatologist and PSCTP supporter, Jane Goodall asked if The Project could expand the veterinary services to donkeys of Tanzania.

Serendipitously, after that request, Dr. Shriner met Russ and Sally White, long time supporters of Huntington Hospital’s […]

Kwaheri (Goodbye) Tanzania

Back from our safari safe and sound. More than I can say for the cape bufallo and the zebra being enjoyed by the lions of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, however!

Dalla Dalla’s & American Pop Culture

We all talk about the people and the hope and the spirit. In addition to the amazing people of Arusha, I have been facinated with how American pop culture is alive and well throughout the town. So many bars with American names (The Hollywood Bar, Moonlight Bar, Las Vegas Bar). Then there’s the Dalla Dalla’s […]

Tumaini (Hope) Revisited

Last January, when we returned to the Upone clinic, I saw very few familiar faces from the year before. Each day I hoped to see Twalibu sitting in the waiting room with his aunt. They never came. Neither did Gerald, the little 6 year old HIV+ boy whose picture we have used on the Phil […]

Another Side of Tanzania

Coming to Tanzania to work has again provided the team an opportunity to see a side of the country and the people that most do not get to see. We have seen over 100 patients this week at Upone Clinic and have learned much more about the culture of the Tanzanians. The patients and staff […]
