Bozdog... Paula and Denny Lofstrom have a medical mission in the Mwanza area. He is a physician and she is a nurse. There are several clinics and dispensaries in the Mwanza area that they are responsible for. They are always looking for medical volunteers and would appreciate the 6 weeks of your assistance. From what I've seen they give medical students a great deal of freedom to do things which they typically aren't able to do. You will not only be of tremendous assistance to them, you will learn a lot from the experience. They are currently in the US for a short leave, but Paula looks at her e-mail often.

Their e-mail address is paulalofstrom@yahoo.com - If you e-mail them tell them that Karl sent you to them.
