Relief for Fire Victims

Kijana Kwanza provides a new livelihood for single mothers.


This afternoon, staff and volunteers of Kijana Kwanza gathered at the site of Mbuyuni Market, which burned down a couple of weeks ago, to start distribution of food parcels, gas cookers and cash grants of TSH. 150,000 (£50/US$70) to victims of the fire.

The event was attended by the Hon. Priscus Tarimo, MP of Moshi Town, who pledged to open a fire station and work towards installing fire hydrants at markets across the region.

On behalf of the market traders, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who responded to our emergency appeal, and the Lady Fatemah Trust (LFT) for matching all donations.
