Corona pandemic

  The worldwide spread of the Corona virus also has far-reaching consequences for our orphanage. The country, like many other countries, was sealed off in the spring. From June, Tanzania has reopened

  its borders to tourists. Since August 2020, our hostel and orphanage is open again for guests and volunteers. Worldwide, however, the Corona pandemic is still ongoing and travel has become very

  complicated for many countries. Tourism in Tanzania has fallen completely to zero and is currently recovering very slowly. Many people here have lost their jobs as a result. We  also do not receive any

  requests from guests or volunteers. We fear that this will continue for a few more months. Since the first illnesses with the virus were reported in Tanzania, food prices have risen by more than 50%.

  This too, is sometimes one reason why we urgentlyneed donations so that the monthly costs can be financed.
