Summary

This project will provide 1 blanket and 2 bed sheets to 300 poorest and sick elders with no families in ubungo district, Tanzania. Within the campaign of "Do Not Throw It, We need It", where our organization is collecting material items from individual, organizations, institution etc. and gives them to the needy, among our beneficiaries are poorest and sick elders who critically need bedding. We do not have these items in our collections so we ask donation to make the purchase for them.

Challenge

Ubungo district, Dar es salaam, Tanzania has the population of 1,119,830 in which 3.1% are 64 + years old, which is 34,715 according to National Bureau of Statistics. Among these elders, there many who are in need. The project has identified among the need, the critical need of blankets and bed sheets for 300 elders. Most of them are poor and sick, besides, they have no family members to take care of them. They are exposed to get cold related diseases such as bronchitis, pneumonia, seasonal flu.

Solution

WISPO gives one blanket and two bed sheets to most vulnerable, poor and sick 300elders. This is part of the project which is known as "Do Not Throw It, We Need It" whereby WISPO collects various material items and food staffs to be distributed to the needy. Apart from giving these elders other items collected, our custody has no bedding for 300 elders who are urgently in need to rescue their lives. This will bring relief and make them enjoy other assistance they get in their lives.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 300 blankets and 600 bed sheets for 300 poorest and sick elders in Ubungo district, Tanzania. These will preliminarily rescue them from getting diseases like bronchitis and pneumonia, gastroenteritis, seasonal flu, colds, Asthma, painful joints etc. The beneficiaries of the project will enjoy the relief of their long term needs which will contribute to their health and well-being enhancing hope of the future.
