Muvuma Carers

Until recently Muvuma house-mothers volunteered their time to look after the 30 children, but as you can imagine it is a major undertaking, so we started paying a small stipend to Mama Nikri. We were advised that a male presence was needed for the boys, so Boniface joined the Muvuma family. 

Using our sponsorship money we provide the funds for beans and charcoal each month, and each month the delivery is cause for celebration and photographs! 

Thank you to everyone who sponsors a child or sponsors the orphanage as a whole. Do contact us if you too wish to sponsor and help transform lives.

Muvuma" The Wall (Part Two)

Mama Nakri and the children are grateful for the gated walls around the orphanage. It's amazing to think that with the support of our community here in Canada, we have built an orphanage and safe haven for children and youth in Kahama! 

Contact us to donate towards the orphanage or to sponsor it on a monthly basis.

The Shipping Container has Arrived!

Finally! This shipping container, which left at the end of October, has arrived at the Kahama District Hospital! You can imagine our frustration at the container being delayed for so long at the port in Dar-es-Salaam, especially when the port and storage costs were rising daily! 

Thanks to the joint efforts of our agent Emmanuel, and Barry T. here in Canada, who put us in touch with Max who was able to visit the port on a regular basis, a large proportion of the accumulated fees were waived and we were able to have the container released. 
A great reminder of the amazing support we have received over the years from Big Steel Box, Penticton.

The motorbike wasn't a part of the shipment! 

Thank you so much to everyone who donated resources, funds, time and skills towards filling and shipping our fifth forty-foot shipping container! 

We had already decided not to ship anymore containers for the foreseeable future, and given the angst of this experience it was a great decision!
