Hayley is delighted to report that all the children are healthy and doing well. One student, Cecelia, has started attending the Institute of Finance Management in Dar es Salaam to pursue a degree in Accountancy, bringing the total number of girls from Karama attending university to four. For over six years, Karama has been searching for the mother of one of the boys, Dickson, who is 13 years old. In July of this year, they succeeded in finding her, which is wonderful news for him. In other good news, the vaccine program has begun in Tanzania, and some of the older children have already received their first vaccine, with no significant side-effects reported.
In March 2022, Hayley successfully completed a fundraiser for Karama Kids by hiking Mt Hanang, Tanzania’s third-highest mountain. She raised £700, which will be used to cover medical expenses for Karama Kids’ newest and youngest boy.
