Professor David Homeli Mwakyusa

professor-mwakyusaAs a medical practitioner, administrator and teacher; and during my time as Minister for Health and Social Welfare, I have been keenly aware of the damage and pain that oral diseases and lack of dental treatment cause in individuals and communities.

Bridge2Aid is a charity that I have witnessed making a tangible, long-term change in the health infrastructure in Tanzania. By training rural health workers in emergency dentistry skills Bridge2Aid is empowering local communities and by so doing making a difference.

I am proud to be associated with an organization that is promoting truly sustainable solutions with such passion and integrity.

Professor David Homeli Mwakyusa. Professor Mwakyusa worked as the Shinyanga District Medical Officer in Tanzania before joining the teaching faculty at the Dar es Salaam University Medical School where he held the position of professor. He was chair of the department of internal medicine and for eight years he served as the director of administration and hospital services at Muhimbili, the national hospital which incorporated the medical school. He served as Minister for Health and Social Welfare in Tanzania for 5 years.

dr-migiroI am delighted to be able to support the work that Bridge2Aid is doing in Tanzania.

Providing training in vital skills to local people means that the organisation is strengthening the healthcare infrastructure of my country.

lord-mccollBridge2Aid is doing amazing work by greatly increasing access to pain relief which is vital in the developing world where so many people are suffering from untreated dental disease.

By training local personnel to provide emergency pain relief, Bridge2Aid is providing a way out of excruciating agony and suffering for people living in already tough conditions.

The focus on empowerment and sustainability, as well as the professionalism and dedication of the team are commendable marks of the organisation.

I am proud to be Patron of an organisation committed to relieving suffering in such a simple, innovative and sustainable way.
