Help Children Refugees in Tanzania

CORONAVIRUS APPEAL: THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN IN TANZANIA

There are over 210,000 displaced people living in overcramped and underfunded refugee camps in Tanzania.

Nduta Camp houses over 75,120 Burundian refugees, while Nyarugusu Camp houses over 60,230 Burundian and 76,425 Congolese refugees. Amongst the most vulnerable and in dire condition, are the children.

With a weak health system, no basic protective equipment, testing or treatment facilities, and where malnutrition and pre-existing health conditions are already extremely high, the current Coronavirus pandemic poses an enormous threat to these young children and their families.

GCF COLLABORATION WITH SAVE THE CHILDREN AND WYCLEF JEAN

Tanzania is overlooked compared to other countries in Africa, and significantly underfunded with virtually no foreign aid or external support. And with 284 Covid-19 confirmed cases in the region, the second highest number of cases in East Africa, we need to put the safety of children first.

Our collaborative campaign with Save The Children, the world’s first global charity for children, and Academy-Award winning artist, Wyclef Jean, will focus on addressing the impact of Covid-19 among vulnerable refugee children and their families in the two refugee camps in Tanzania.

OUR COMMITMENT

Our mission is to raise a total of US$ 1,000,000.

This will help us reach 23,000 children directly and 7,800 indirectly.

The funds will benefit the most vital needs of the children in these refugee camps, to ensure access to proper health, sanitation, and nutrition, to protect their rights, and finally to provide adequate learning and education.

WATER AND SANITATION
We will provide hygiene kits and establish hand washing facilities in schools, youth centres, and libraries.

COMMUNICATION
Allocation of cell phones to child protection workers to continue their vital work during the lockdown.

PROTECTION
Distribution of mental health and psychosocial kits and provide disability friendly toys and furniture.

EDUCATION
Assign radios to access government-led lessons, and solar lanterns to continue to read in the evening.
