Supporting desert nurses
In her mission among the nomads in northern Mali, one of Sister Anne Marie Salomon’s main objectives is to train local medical staff in order to perpetuate her work.
After graduating from three years of study, the nurses work at the nomadic hospital in Gossi, or travel around the region with the donation of a motorbike to help the nomadic tribes. They provide care in bush clinics or in makeshift locations, and despite the instability in this part of the country, their work continues and is perpetuated every year. Since 2003, MAP has funded the training of five nurses, a laboratory technician and the purchase of motorbikes for each of them, to the tune of €12,000.
