My Message

Over thirty years ago Jenny and I worked with CUSO (Canadian University Students Overseas) for two years in Papua New Guinea. It was the experience of a lifetime. Many of you have heard stories of our life there and the work we did, and have expressed admiration for the opportunity that CUSO provided us.

Cuso International (a new name because it is so much more than an organization for recent graduates these days) continues to send Canadians (and others) to participate in projects the developing world.

Cuso International has an ongoing commitment to expanding provision of health care in Western Tanzania. A number of medical and paramedical personnel have been there recently, and more are scheduled in the near future. 

The Maweni Hospital in Kigoma has an inpatient population of 120 - 140 patients per day, and 300 - 350 outpatients per day. There are numerous surgical problems that need to be addressed, but they have no surgeon. 

I have been recruited to work as a surgeon, and to help to build capacity for surgical services within the current hospital staff. We plan to work at the Maweni Hospital for 3 months.

As a charity, Cuso International asks all volunteers to undertake a $2,000 fundraising target to help sustain our work. I have recently updated my goal to $7,500 since everyone has been so generous!

And, for every $1 I raise, the Canadian government will contribute $9!

In exchange for your donation I will keep you posted via email on the work that we do. I'll also look forward to sharing our experiences in person when we return home.

Thank you for your generosity and your support!

Roy
