Jan and Chase Becker first came to the United Republic of Tanzania in 2014. Chase was a trainee nurse and Jan a Registered Nurse and Registered Clinical Midwife with over 30 years’ experience. They volunteered their time once a year with Work the World (www.worktheworld.com) until 2016 when they started to return several times a year.
They’ve consistently volunteered at Amana Regional Referral Hospital in Ilala District, Dar es Salaam since 2014.
Over the course of their volunteering they brought equipment, resources (such as medicines and other disposable equipment) and offered training to midwives in basic neonatal resuscitation called the Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) program.
