Sycamore seeks to highlight charities established and run by medical professionals. So much of what drives a healthcare provider from the onset of their interest in medicine is the idea of being able to help people in their time of need. This quarter we applaud Tanzania Christian Clinic. Emergency medicine physician, Danny Smelser, MD and his wife, Nancy Smelser, RN began their missionary work in Africa in 1979. Their homebase is Florence, Alabama, however they spend much of their year in their clinic located in Ngaresh Juu, a rural village in northern Tanzania. The nearest town is Monduli, about 6 km away.

Primary mission activities are healthcare, clinical training, patient education and evangelism. TCC offers quality healthcare to all who present for treatment. Clinical training at TCC exists to serve as a medical missions training center for physicians in residency, medical students, PA students, nursing students and students in pharmacy. Patient education in the form of preventive medicine is an objective of TCC. Teaching occurs at the individual level and at the community level. Mobile medical clinics to outlying areas are scheduled on a regular basis to assist in the education of the local people. Lastly, the foundation of TCC is to teach grace and truth, and show the love of Jesus in a practical way, by serving and filling the healthcare needs of the local population.

The medical clinic operates mainly on generosity of donors. As you consider end of year giving, please consider this worthy cause!
