Tedi Update

Tedi is finally located! Larry Pepper, the doctor that we worked with in Kigoma, had been frantically trying to locate her since she left the hospital there.  Her father had taken her home because the Kigoma hospital was not able to provide the care that she needed. We were so afraid that she would die before she could be found.

Once she was located, she and her father were sent by bus to Arusha. There they were welcomed to the "Plaster House". The "Plaster House" is a place where children requiring long term medical care can stay with their family and receive care.

She has now had her surgery and is on antibiotics to try to heal the infection in her bones.

 July 9th 2016 Tedi has been released from the hospital.
