Making A Difference

Our Mission

is to make the delivery of health care better in east Africa. In doing so we aim to make the world a better, healthier and safer place.

Our Vision is global. Our efforts will be directed at people in need and will not be limited by religion, nationality, geographic borders or fear.

Our Strategies

Besides supporting direct medical volunteer work to Biharamulo District Hospital we believe the most effective means to improve health care in rural underserved areas is education and increasing medical infrastructure. To that end we have begun and supported:

  • The Clean Hands Project: supplied 24 hand cleaning soap dispensers through out the hospital that often has no running water.
  • The Portable Ultrasound Project: With the help of Sonosite Corporation brought rapid, portable, bedside diagnostic capabilities to this hospital that often has no electricity.
  • Breast Cancer Research: Working with researchers at University of New England, Maine Medical Center and Kilimanjaro Christian Medical center in Moshi, Tanzania The Sandy Christman Foundation is supporting the development of NOHA, a point of care testing technology for breast cancer diagnosis in rural, poor, resource limited areas like western Tanzania.
  • Solar Power: We believe 21st century health care improvement is impossible without good infrastructure particularly electricity. The SCF is now beginning its 4th solar project in Tanzania. (see our Projects  page)
