LUHOMBERO,





Why Your Help Is Needed

-- a memo from Father Placid

A very threatening event today. A hippo has broken the leg of a boy. He is of 27 years old. He was going to the farm to work and on the way he met the hippo. People brought him at Luhombero dispensary but of course there is very little medicine. People from all the corners of the village have come to the dispensary to witness the event. It is very terrible. Up to this moment I am struggling to get a car from the government authority but have not yet succeeded. The boy cannot get proper treatment in Mahenge, or Ifakara or Morogoro town. It must be in Dar es Salaam. But how to reach there? It is the riddle. Attached is the boy at the dispensary. I wish I had the way to help. Every day is another riddle.
