Together in health and hope

Welcome to Dashir-Kikwe Health Centre

“Together in health and hope” reflects our desire to come alongside our Tanzanian brothers and sisters in every aspect of life. During this COVID-19 tourism pause, we have been given a unique opportunity to go forward with our vision of boosting the healthcare for our rural village community of Kikwe.

So, we have decided to build a Health Centre, and we need your help. Will you join us?

Karibu sana! You are most welcome!
