Covid-19 in Kindwitwi and Leprosy Update

Covid 19 and its Consequences

Tanzania is suffering from Covid-19 as other places of this world. Currently, we are happy to share that Kindwitwi has no one detected with Covid-19 but we are still suffering from its consequences.  Like many countries around the world schools have been closed to try to stop the virus spreading.  All students have been at home since mid March and we do not know when they will go back.  This means that for lots of students it will be difficult to do well in their exams because they have not had the opportunity to study for a long time.  The Government has announced that it wants to open Colleges and Form six students in June but Kindergarten, Primary School and Secondary school O-level will have to wait.

Leprosy News

One new leprosy patient was detected. The person is male, he is adult with disability grade 2 at Ikwiriri Village.

We would like to inform you that our long time patient Mzee Saidi has passed away.  He died on the 15th April 2020. His death was caused by old age. Mzee Saidi left 5 children who are now all grown up.  His smile and warm sense of humour will be deeply missed by all who know him.

The RLT Trustees would also wish to extend, on behalf of our supporters, our deepest condolences to his family.
