A word From Chairperson - Dr Benedicta Lyapembile
Better Health Foundation (BHF) believes that every Tanzanian child has the right to get a reliable and sustainable health services when the need arises. According to the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, only 14% of Tanzanians are using health insurance (Presidential Speech on 21/04/2021). Therefore, our number one goal is to ensure underprivileged children in Tanzania with special needs from orphanage centers, from poor families and those who are born with anomalies such as albinism, diabetes, blindness, sickle-cell and any other congenital malformation are provided with free sustainable health insurance.
No candle loses its light by lighting another candle, BHF humbly invites you, your friends and all donors from Tanzania (Residents and Diasporas), Africa and worldwide with good will to support these children. For diasporas, kindly join our campaign of Rudisha Upendo Nyumbani (RUN) to contribute any amount individually or in groups.
On behalf of BHF Team, I would like to use this opportunity to convey our heartfelt gratitude to everyone for supporting us to make an impact on the lives of underprivileged children
