Ben and Katy Ray are our mission partners in Tanzania. For the safety of the staff and community they have decided to shut down the Neema Centre until such a point as it seems safe to re-open. This was not an easy decision, especially as there are very few reported cases currently in Tanzania, but one that they think will keep them ahead of the infection curve, with the pandemic likely to hit hard when it does.

While the Centre is closed, the Neema Crafts team has started producing a range of PPE for local hospitals and other front-line workers, from the safety of their homes.

Supporting this appeal enables the production of this PPE, protecting the lives of front-line workers against Covid-19 and supporting the livelihoods of people with disabilities in Iringa, Tanzania, whilst they work from home.
