Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world and many are living in houses that - even by African standards - are abysmal. For the immunocompromised HIV patients, but also for some with orthopedic, mental health or other conditions, the lack of adequate shelter is an impediment to their health. Houses for Health builds a small, basic house for these people. For about $3,500 the team can build a dry, safe home. Using 100% local materials and labor, this project assists the local economy as well. So far, the team has completed houses for 140 families, and they continue to build.
All of these projects have been funded by donors and supporters, not CHI Health operating funds. We welcome you to join us in these efforts. If you have questions or want to know more you can contact Bob Kasworm.
