Doreen Mshana, one of the three victims of the recent Karatu Road accident, who was sent to the US for treatment has been discharged from Mercy Hospital, where she was receiving treatment.
Doreen joins two other students, Sadia Ismael and Wilson Tarimo, at Roland McDonald’s House in Sioux City LA, where they have been living since they were discharged.
“Doreen has joined her fellow students at Roland McDonald’s House. They are continuing with rehabilitation,” posted the Singida North Member of Parliament, Lazaro Nyalandu, who coordinated the students’ trip to the US.
Doreen had initially been operated on following the injuries she sustained in the accident but doctors discovered a complication in her spine, necessitating a second surgery. The procedure was expected to last for five and half hours but it was successfully completed in four hours.
According to reports from the Mercy hospital, the surgical team consisted of six doctors who were led by Dr John Meyer and Dr Quentin Durward.
Doreen and the other two children survived a grisly road accident that killed 32 children of Lucky Vincent Primary School in Arusha, two teachers and a driver on April 6, this year.
