Quilts and Kits for Vulnerable Populations in Tanzania

14:43 Sep 19 2013 Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Even though Tanzania is located near the equator, there is a significant temperature drop at night. The colder temperatures further put vulnerable populations, such as persons with disabilities and the elderly, at risk. The goal of the project was also centered on providing persons facing poverty the ability to access material resources to help reduce poverty.

Mission Quilts will be distributed to the elderly, persons with disabilities and persons facing poverty.

A story:

Amani is a Kiswahili word for peace. No doubt this is a perfect name for an orphanage centre. A natural forest of acacia trees is a kind of special ingredient to the tranquility of the area. On December 27, 2013 the centre experienced a blessing, as 32 boys, 30 girls and a team of 30 men and women who volunteered to take care of the children at the centre, received quilts from the LWR-CCT program.
