The Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic from Bill Saunders on Vimeo.

In a region where the only reliable transportation takes place by boat, LTFHC decided to build a hospital on a ship that travels up and down the coastlines, serving the remote lakeside communities. This group is partners to the lakeside communities and advocate for the needs of the lake and her people. This includes environmental stewardship, participation in the formation of local economic development, and encouragement of a grassroots political voice for the people of the region.
