This report was written by Mrs Mwanaida Mtaka Head Teacher of Mtandi Primary School

With great thanks from Masasi primary schools society, I on behalf of the society, I dare present their great thanks and appreciation for your moral and material support to our lovely disabled children.

I am writing not only to appreciate your efforts but also to give you the order of how we spent the money, for an intended task and I will at least attach the photos ensuring the trend of treatment in various eye clinics we attended

We received £ 1500 which is nearly Tanzanian shillings 4,050,000/= from our church leaders (Anglican diocese of Masasi) Sister Bertha CMM; The money was provided for the aim of sending children with eye problem for treatment in Ndanda and then those who were referred for further treatment (i.e. operation) were sent to CCBRT (Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation in Tanzania) Dar es salaam

16 pupils were sent to Ndanda referral hospital for eye clinic and assessment, 10 pupils were treated at the level of getting assistive devices (refractive glasses) which are to be used all the time during their studies and in their mobility.

One boy Haji Juma attended for an eye operation and he was provided

with an artificial lens. It was a successful operation and here after he

is doing fine.

The boy Arab Mohamed who is deaf-blind attended the Hearing

Clinic and he is to be provided with hearing aids, and as soon as they

get the hearing aid, they are going to bring them to our school. Also

he was provided with ear medicine to use for a period of time when he

is waiting for hearing aids.

A lady, Asina Salum, was examined at CCBRT and the doctor

postponed the operation and she was provided with refractive glasses.

Two pupils, Dalia Bakari and Neema Saidi were put into an operation time table

which is to be held on 15th April 2015 at CCBRT-Dar es Salaam.

We therefore prepare child’s parents to join with teachers on 12th April

2015 ready for the journey to Dar es Salaam

Cost analysis:

a) Cost of transport, meals, accommodations of 6 teachers together

with 16 pupils and treatment cost of 10 pupils at Ndanda

Referral Hospital was Tsh 600,000/= approximately to £222.2

b) Cost of transport, meals, accommodation of 3 accompanied

teachers and treatment of 6 pupils at CCBRT-Dar es Salaam was

Tsh 3,067,400/= approximately to £1136.1

c) Remained is 382,600/= which is equal to £141.7

Taking this as a token of our gratitude to your moral and financial

support to our society. Your support has marked an endless memory

to us. We believe, you are part and parcel of our society and we also

belong to you too.

We would like to invite you as a society to make a visit as honoured

guests to Masasi Primary School, so that you can see how we do and

share with us some of our activities.

Bishop James and Veronica Almasi with His Excellency Peter Kallaghe

The London Masasi Day was held at All Saints Margaret Street with over twenty five people from all over the UK attending.

Bishop James gave an outline of his vision for the next five years and invited people to attend the 50th Anniversary of the consecration of Rondo Chapel, St Cyprian’s Day in September 2015. This was followed by a question and answer session, which benefited greatly from having the High Commissioner present, and a power point presentation by Bishop James on what is happening now in the Diocese of Masasi.

There was plenty of time before mass and lunch to renew acquaintances and to meet other supporters of the Diocese.

After lunch there was a presentation by Julian Marcus, the Chairman of the Tanzania Development Trust, who has been to Masasi earlier this year and was able to give further details of projects in the Mtwara Region, and elsewhere, including a recently completed refuge for girls fleeing from FGM.

Overall a very rewarding day.
