Mwanza. The Christian Life World Mission Frontiers - Tanzania Chapter plans to unveil a hospital ship (photo) that would provide mobile medical services to people living in Lake Victoria islands.

The sectary for Tanzania Chapter, Mr Frederick Ntakabanyula, told The Citizen that the programme is new in Africa, adding that it will be launched on Saturday next week, but the services will officially commence early November, this year.
