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. During this COVID-19 tourism pause, we have been given a unique opportunity to go forward with our vision of improving the healthcare in our rural village community of Kikwe.

So, we have ambitiously decided to build and operate a Health Centre. Will you partner with us?

Karibu sana! You are very welcome!
