More than 50 patients with burn scars will get free treatment to be provided by a team of Western Australian surgeons and nurses at Sekou Toure regional hospital in Mwanza late next month.

The exercise, scheduled to begin on October 30 and last until November 9, this year, will be carried out by the foreign doctors in collaboration with their local counterparts.

Speaking in Dar es Salaam recently mission coordinator Devotha Temba urged patients with the problem, especially from mining areas, to show up for the treatment.
