Project: Ukerewe medical mission (March 25th to April 12th, 2020)
Start Date: 25/03/2020
My name is Kelly Crotty and I am a pharmacist who is privileged to be part of a two-week medical caravan to Ukerewe Island in Tanzania this spring. This will be my fifth trip to Ukerewe Island. It is fair to say the Island and the people have captured my heart!
Our group is the Canada-Africa Health Alliance (CACHA), a non-profit, non-governmental organization that was founded in 2001 by a medical doctor from the University of Ottawa, Dr.Don Kilby who has been awarded the Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Award, the Ontario Award for Good Citizenship, and most recently the Governor General’s Meritorious Service Medal for his work with CACHA.
Thank you so much for your donation. Your donation goes directly to cover the cost of medication, medical supplies and primary care to over 4000 patients on Ukerewe Island.
We work closely together as a team of Canadian and Tanzanian Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Pharmacy technicians, surgeons and logisticians to provide the local people with free health care services including:
- primary health care
- eye exams and reading glasses
- HIV, malaria and syphillis testing
- dental extractions
We are also always looking for volunteers to join our team. Both medical and non-medical people are welcome! Interested? I am always willing to talk about my wonderful experiences or you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

The individuals on these pages are raising funds in support of CACHA’s mission. The funds are given to CACHA to defray the costs of participation in, and supplies for, the mission, and not for the personal benefit of any participant. CACHA retains control over the use of all donated funds. Once the needs for the program have been met, or cannot be completed for any reason, any remaining contributions will be used where needed most.
