Big thanks from the Trust to fellow trustee Andy, and for his effort of cycling 1180km in support of Kitaa Hope Home this summer. We will receive over £500 from sponsorship and gifts that have been given for Andy's efforts!

A report from Kitaa in June: "We planted Cassava and gave it to the children to eat. We didn't know that it had a problem and all the children got stomache ache. They cried and we took them to the hospital. Then we researched and we find that it had very dangerous insects inside it called "Mdudu Mtu". We give thanks to God because all of the children are fine. We were told that the insects can kill a person."

In May this year three-year old twins, Anna and Anania (a little boy) arrived from Tanga, to the east of Moshi. Their mother was malnourished in pregnancy, and is paralysed down one side of her body. The newborns were placed in a local orphanage which cares for babies up to two years old. When they reached that age they were returned to the incapacitated mother. No-one else is willing or able to care for them, having what Mama Esta calls ‘hard life’. They are not biddable children at the moment. Mama has employed Nora as a full-time nanny for them.

The third newcomer is Prisca, aged six. Prisca is an orphan from West Kilimanjaro. She was being looked after by her grandmother who is now too old and ill to cope. Prisca is at the on-site nursery until December. In January, which is the beginning of the Tanzanian school year, she and Yohana will start their primary education at St Timothy’s, with the other children.
