How You Can Help

Health Tanzania

Our current programs focus on two very poor neighborhoods in Dar es Salaam, a city of five million people, and very poor and isolated coastal villages. With our Tanzanian partners, we are helping to provide out-patient and in-patient health care, community health and prevention programs, and primary education.
