In May, Penny visited Makat with Dr. Jo Moore, a British doctor with a strong interest in public health education and women’s health issues.  In Makat for over a week, they conducted a series of workshops including basic eye care, the importance of hand-washing, anemia, STD and HIV transmission.  They also held training for Traditional Birth Attendants.  A group of women walked 30 miles from Wosiwosi to attend this.  Rehema Simon, a masai woman from a nearby village now working in Arusha, played a key role as translator.
