We had a very nice surprise just recently when Moses Lauwo of Igoma Rotary Club delivered a hand washing station to Mayega Children’s Centre. We have had facilities at the Centre gate since the start of the Corona crisis but the Rotary device is a step up. Many thanks to Moses and his colleagues for their kindness. There is also a washing station for workers on the construction site for the new toilets at Mayega Primary School.
The Tanzanian government has decided to reopen primary and secondary schools on Monday 29th June. The first country in East Africa to do so. Universities and colleges are already open. The latest official figures say there are 66 patients hospitalised with Covid across 10 of the country’s 26 regions. Our local contacts suggest there are no cases in Mayega or Busega District but we have heard of cases in the city of Mwanza.
