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

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.

6 pupils were sent to Dar es Salaam for further intervention during the course of treatment; Doctors found that, one among these pupils (Ahmad Ramadhani) has to attend an eye operation (eye removal) to the regional hospital which is Ndanda referral hospital.
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

belong to you too.
