Although Tanzania has tropical zones, certain areas get quite cold in the winter, so vulnerable populations in particular may struggle to stay warm at night. Mission Quilts will be distributed to elderly folks, orphans, people living with HIV/AIDS, and other groups living in established centers of care.
