Happy Saturdays thanks to Nguvu Ngano!

We always say that despite the needs of the centre we have to give thanks every day! We are really lucky because we have really good people close to us who are trying to help our children as much as possible.

One of the big needs and one of the most important is the food. We are trying to be self-supply but it isn’t easy when you are feeding more than 30 children and you want to give to them the best.

Two Saturdays ago we had a really special visitor: Idd. R. Mkolamasa (Branch Manager of Nguvu Ngano – Cereals and other products board of Tanzania). They have opened a new branch in Same and they didn’t want to lost the opportunity to visit our children. They really enjoyed the time with our children and they brought more than 200 kilograms of food. We are really thankful to them, because they have understood our needs and they have supported us! So we want to say a big THANKS for them!

Therapeutic Weeks – June

Last month of June we have been able to reactivate the therapeutic weeks thanks to our friends of Farfalle Di Luce. They have helped us with the equipment required from the government. Therefore we could start again taking all the preventions needed.

During this month we have had 15 children from different villages of our region. Since 10 months until 10 years old. Most of this children have cerebral palsy and problems for walking. We have provided to their parents the tools and the formation for continue treating them at home. Some of them will be back for the next session. And we will follow each case, we love seeing how they are progressing thanks to the therapy!

Now we are waiting for the next therapeutic weeks. Thanks for reading and for your support! If you have any question, don’t hesitate to ask us!

Help!!! Starting again with the Therapeutic Weeks :)

*Updated on the 2nd of June.

Hello our friends! We are writing to you because we need your help.

As you know we had to stop the therapeutic weeks. Right now the situation with the Covid-19 and the measures of our government allows us to start again with the therapeutic weeks. So we are happy to being able starting again but we have to take care about our children and following all the instructions… so they have asked for having these materials:

  • PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for our team formed by Bejamin (physiotherapist) and Happy, Theopista and Sofia (occupational therapists).
  • Thermometer.
  • Gloves.
  • Masks.
  • Sanitizer.

All these material costs around 1,000,000 TSHs (equivalent, approximately, to 400€). So if we achieved getting this we could start again helping the children who are waiting for attending it.

We know that this is not a good moment but if everyone help us with a little we could achieve our goal: Improving the life of children with disabilities! Therefore, if you think that you could help us you can contact us here or directly you can do your donation on this account:
