Keeping Tabs: Vander

This guy. Dr. Vander Bembele. First off, he's incredibly kind. He helped us so much during our trainings in Nampula. Second, he's a lot of fun. One night, over beers, he blew our minds with this comment: "If I won the lottery, with the proceeds I would buy every woman and girl in Mozambique the menstrual health items they need so they had access from then on." Vander cares so much about women and children.

Please enjoy more of his words below about working with Nurses En Route! We miss you, amigo. Thank you for your kindness and hopeful attitude.

Under The Community Alert for a Readiness Hospital project, sponsored by the Faculty of Health Sciences (FCS) of Lurio University and the University of Saskatchewan (Canada), in partnership with the Nampula Provincial Health Board, the Health Center ((CSM) and Marrere General Hospital (HGM)), Natikiri Administrative Post (PAN) and other non-governmental organizations active in the health sector in Nampula, HGM maternity has had the opportunity to learn about Helping Babies Breathe with a fabulous team of North American nurses - Nurse en Route. It was an intense two days of learning for us as newborn care providers to clear up our doubts, and to adjust our practice to new knowledge that will lead to better newborn care services at our work.

I want to thank the Nurse team for the two fantastic days and the material provided that can be used by us to save lives.

Thank you very much on behalf of my Maternity team.

Best regards,
