Rex Helps Shine a Little Light in Tanzania

Share


Children born with disabilities or medical problems in remote villages of Tanzania face a bleak future, made worse by prejudice and poverty. Rex grantee Mwangaza Tanzania (“Mwangaza” means “beacon” in Swahili) seeks out these children and matches them with the best medical resources. They also conduct health education classes to address preventable diseases and medical problems. David Large recently had a conversation with Mwangaza founder/director Paula Gremley, which we’re pleased to feature as our latest Food for Thought.
