Volunteer and Donor Spotlight

The Phil Simon Clinic and The Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project have been fortunate to have many volunteers and dedicated donors from all walks of life participating and supporting the project. Children and adults have supported our fundraising events, volunteered in the Pasadena Clinic and of course, volunteered for many aspects of our work in East Africa.

Support from many prestigious and talented outside organizations have enhanced the community spirit of the Clinic and the Tanzania Project. Organizations such as Creative Planet School of The Arts, Holy Family School in South Pasadena, The San Marino Tsunami Swim Team, The Phoenix Pharmacy and Wellness Center, The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles and the South Pasadena Senior Center Art Class have all given their time and talented members to the project.

Volunteer professionals from Huntington Memorial Hospital, Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, Occidental College, the California Institute of Technology and Dartmouth College have enhanced Clinic activities and projects.

Finally, the many patients of The Phil Simon Clinic have generously given their time and clinical experiences. All of these organizations and people are testimony to the community fabric of The Phil Simon Clinic.

Tanzania Project’s Featured Donors/Volunteers


Cate and Eddy Hartenstein founded the Hartenstein Family Foundation in 2019 in an effort to foster the education of those in need. The Hartenstein’s believe that an education is the foundation from which all positive change occurs and together with their two sons Carl and Christian, and Christian’s wife Kate, they hope to impact the world through scholarship and learning. The Hartenstein family learned about the Phil Simon Clinic through Dr. Kimberly Shriner and their recent travels to Tanzania. They felt as though the work of the PSCTP team aligned with their values and was a perfect partner to assist in executing their mission.

It wasn’t long before the Hartenstein’s learned of Jacqueline Wilfred, a nursing student being sponsored by the PSCTP with aspirations to become a Certified Nurse Midwife. In December 2019 The Hartenstein Family Foundation announced their decision to sponsor a full ride scholarship for Jacqueline to attain her graduate degree in midwifery at the school of her choice. In addition to Jacquline’s scholarship, The Hartenstein Family foundation has established the Ann C. Waldschmidt Nursing Scholarship to support a nursing student in Tanzania. The Hartenstein’s look forward to further collaboration with the PSCTP and witnessing the bright futures of Jacqueline and others like her.
