Current Projects

We provide Christian support for development projects where we see the need. In recent years we have focuses on Medical, Education, Agriculture and Water projects. All donations go directly to the projects and our representatives on the ground work hand in hand to ensure accountability and project success!


Arusha Medical Centre

2014 - Present

The Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at  the ALMC medical centre is dedicated to providing care for critically ill premature and term babies. Free and subsidised care is provided to babies in the NICU. At present, the facility provides the highest level of care available for critically-ill babies in Tanzania and is among the most advanced NICUs in East Africa. In 2017 the facility had their smallest survivor ever, baby Gracious, weighing only 670 grams (1 pound – 7 ounces) on arrival. This beautiful little girl was born 14 weeks premature, and along with her twin brother was discharged home after 2 months in the NICU. Both are doing very well! 

Future growth in the NICU depends on continued donations to support the costs of caring for these critically-ill neonates. It is worth noting that the annual NICU budget (caring for 250+ hospitalized neonates) remains less than the cost of a single newborn being hospitalized in a NICU in the United States for 2 weeks!
