On behalf of Rainbow For Africa, Association of Volunteer Doctors of Turin, one of our most active partners, we left for Senegal to deliver two vehicles for a health project financed by the Waldensian church.
1. Delivery of a van designed for the health needs of Kassak, a village in Senegal,
2. A pick up toallow doctors and nurses to get around on their missions in the area.
3. Managing desease by offering medical service in the villages, often far from the capital city and difficult to reach.
