While we in the West are still in ‘lockdown’ with the threat that the current Coronavirus restrictions will go on further, many in Africa just have to carry on. Thankfully in Tabora, problems due to Covid19 don’t seem to be so great. That may be because the population profile is much younger and so those who get ill are less likely to die. Or it may be that, as there is very little funding available for testing and monitoring, they just don’t know what effect it is having.
Recently we asked some local people in Tabora if they would use their mobile phones to record short pieces of film to give us an idea of some of the work that is going on in Tanzania. And so we were able to produce a short film [initially intended for a ‘Missionary Sunday’ service from Bunyan Baptist Church – part of their regular on-line lockdown offerings].
This film – available at https://youtu.be/PuKhYXIsOzg is entitled ‘A Tale of Two Charities’ and talks a bit about how the work of this charity [FMCP-UK] supports the work of the Tanzanian charity [FMI].
We hope that you will enjoy watching this if you haven’t seen it before.
While writing I would like to say again a big thank you to those of you who have generously supported this work. There have been a couple of significant donations in the last month or so and so we say thanks to those people, especially. If you would like to donate, the best way is to do it through our CAF Donate page at www.cafdonate.cafonline.org/11331 . CAF Donate will automatically process Gift Aid etc for us and so make the donation process so much easier for us as a charity.
