More than 58 million people live in Tanzania, and about 3.6 million of these people have a disability. Many of them are children. Hope and Healing International is committed to reaching as many of these kids as we can – making sure they get the medical care they need and a comforting bear to hug.
An Amazing Hospital
We believe in top quality care, which is why our partner hospital is the largest provider of surgeries and rehabilitative services for people with disabilities in Tanzania. This 200-bed hospital is located in Dar es Salaam, one of the largest cities in Tanzania. Here, we provide surgery and care to kids with disabilities like visual impairments, cleft lip and palate, clubfoot and burn scar contractures. At the hospital, these kids receive surgery, rehabilitation and training to set them up for success in their homes.
Serving Thousands Through Rehabilitation
Our partner also has an incredible rehabilitation centre in Moshi, Tanzania that serves thousands of clients every year. Parents of children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, hydrocephalus or limited mobility come to this clinic to receive training and education to learn how to best support their kids. And on top of the training, this centre provides assistive devices that allow kids to sit straighter, walk better or roll to school.
Our goal is to support kids with disabilities by providing medical treatment so they can have a brighter future and achieve their full potential.
