Blog by MBP Volunteer, Nina On one of our taxi brousse-rides back to KAFS from Mananjary (a coastal town about 2 hours from KAFS) early in March, Sara and I had some very unusual company for a good 45-minute stretch of the trip.

Health Care in Madagascar

Blog from MBP Volunteer, Sara Health Care in Madagascar… What a difference it is to be ill in a third world country. Yes, there are doctors here and yes, there is medicine that you can purchase.
