Busega Scotland has a very close relationship with a Tanzanian NGO called Shaloom Care House, based in Mwanza. While we are barely 3 years old, Shaloom has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary! The project offers services to individuals and families affected by HIV and AIDS. It is under the auspices of the Catholic church but offers support to anybody in need. There are medical and nursing services, the provision of antiretroviral drugs, a nursery and educational support for many young people. At the celebration, the project co-ordinator Msafiri Wana, welcomed Angeline Mabula,the Deputy Minister of Lands, Housing and Human Settlement as the Guest of Honour, the Archbishop of Mwanza, the Regional Commissioner (the president’s representative in Mwanza Region) and visitors from the Netherlands, who represented funding organisations. Two Nuns, who were founders of the project, also attended along with 900 guests, including 300 children. The congregation celebrated mass, and it was then entertained by the children and young people singing and by traditional dancing. The celebrations concluded with lunch. Well done to Shaloom Care House for arranging such a prestigious event and for its many achievements over such a long period of time.
