History

 

You Touch Africa is a young registered charity with a number of trustees who have experience of raising funds for Africa. They were part of a group that successfully raised money in 2002 for the refurbishment of the Makomu Hospital in Northern Tanzania.

 

Before this project, the hospital had an old leaking galvanized iron roof, defective electrical wiring and poor decoration.

The money needed was raised when Fr Arbo Lekule, who was born in Makomu, led a sponsored climb of the nearby Mount Kilimanjaro, a concert in London and other initiatives.

The funds raised enabled the hospital to be successfully refurbished by local people in 2003.

After the roof was replaced, the hospital was redecorated and reequipped.

The re-roofed, repaired and redecorated hospital is now functioning as a local hospital, serving the needs of the local population.
