Newsletter Archive


RLT newsletters are produced quarterly.

The news from Kindwitwi village is sent by the Centre Manager, Abdallah Nguyu, to the editors in the UK. The newsletters contain news not only about Kindwitwi, but also about the part the Centre plays in leprosy control in the Rufiji region and occasional news of our Trustees.

The first newsletter was produced in 1989 by Teresa and Robin Pim, and the editors hold an almost complete back set. To access an earlier copy, or to submit items for the newsletter, please write to:
