Rebuilding after the Earthquake

You will no doubt be aware of the earthquake which took place in Kagera region, in particular in Bukoba area, on 10th September 2016. The Earthquake measured 5.7 on Richter Scale. BTS Executive Committee Member and TDT Project Officer, Aseri Katanga wrote:

‘Some people died and so many houses, hospitals, schools and churches were reduced to rubble. Some roads have been affected in a big way. It will take decades for things to return to normality. Things were bad before this but now things are pathetic to say the least.’

Many of the communities who have been affected by the earthquake are those whom TDT has helped with grants in the past. It is our hope that we can help them to rebuild or repair the fabric of schools and other projects damaged or destroyed.

We appeal to you to help us to provide funds to help our friends in Tanzania to rebuild after the Earthquake.
