Amber was inspired to become a lifelong volunteer, after a month in Shirati.

Amber Knight, MD

Obstetrician and Gynecology Resident Physician at UC San Diego,
San Diego CA

"I am an Obstetrician and Gynecology Resident Physician at UC San Diego and had the opportunity to work at Shirati Hospital through REACH Shirati (formerly AISCS) for 4 weeks in Februrary to March of 2015. This experience was life changing!

"I worked side by side with the Tanzanian doctors and nurses mostly in the operating theatre helping with gynecologic surgery and in Labor and Delivery assisting with complicated deliveries. I learned many valuable lessons in caring for patients in a rural setting with limited resources and had the opportunity to go out to the villages to participate in outreach activities regarding maternal and child health.
"These patient encounters will stay with me forever. Additionally, I developed many wonderful friendships during this time with people from all over the world as well as learned about the rich Tanzanian culture and explored the beautiful country.
"This experience has inspired me to use what I have learned in Shirati to continue to volunteer internationally to help provide care and education to people in resource poor areas throughout my career. I am very thankful for my experience with REACH Shirati!"
