Haydom Lutheran Hospital is a series of squat brick buildings with metal roofs, nestled in the heart of a rural town called Haydom. It’s in northern Tanzania, a country on the east coast of Africa. The hospital is 300 kilometres from the nearest major city and serves an area that’s home to nearly 1 million people. It’s also where Jung In Kim, a third year pharmacy student, spent a co-op work term.
