Sammamish Rotary Provides Lead Funding For Hope Village Health Center
Linda Hines, Founder and President of Songea’s Kids organization that is dedicated to help Tanzanians meet the basic, health and educational needs of their orphaned children attended our February 9th, 2017 meeting to update the progress being made in Hope Village and to receive a $10,000 lead contribution to start building the planned Health Center. Linda pointed out that there were nurses assigned to the village, but they had no place to work out of, and lived away from the village. This created a high priority to build this facility early on as the nurses will now live and work on location. Linda also indicated that these the funds and the brick making tools that we previously funded will be put to work immediately. The location of the building is shown on this page, and the overall plan can be seen here.
Our Rotary club is very pleased to be a part of this project!
