Reaching out to the handicapped and Albino societies

Linet Arandi

The Shelys team selected three beneficiaries based in Dar es Salaam who are in desperate need of support.

The Tanzania Albinism Society is an NPO that was established in 1978 to protect and empower people with albinism. This beneficiary received donations of clothing and medicines.

Mbagala Kizinga is a primary school that collaborates with the Tanzania Association for Mentally Handicapped (TAMH). The students at this school were grateful to receive lunch boxes, stationery and caps while a donation of medicines was also handed over to the facilitators.

A third beneficiary, the Amana Hospital which was established in 1981 to promote empowerment of persons with intellectual disabilities, and is aligned to the TAMH, also received donations from Shelys.
