In January and February of 2016, LWR shipped Mission quilts and kits to our partner in Tanzania, Christian Council of Tanzania – WAMA (CCT). These shipments are the second and third in a large three part shipment to Tanzania; the first shipment left LWR’s warehouse in August of 2015. The distribution will target the regions of Arusha, Tanga, Iringa, Kilimanjaro, Ruvuma and Mbeya, focusing on orphanages and homes for the elderly. In addition, the region hosts a large number of refugees from Burundi, and many refugees will also receive quilts and kits. An estimated 48,000 people will be served through these three shipments in total.
