Donations sought of study and care packages

The Rotary Club of Umina Beach is asking for donation of study packs and Covid-19 care packages for a school in Tanzania.

"Covid-19 could have a devastating impact on St Jude's students and their families as many of them come from poor backgrounds with limited access to health care and basic supplies," said club newsletter editor Mr Simon Darwin.

"Supporters of St Jude's can help provide additional support to St Jude students, their families and the wider community, so that together, they can address the growing threat of Covid-19 in Tanzania."

Every St Jude student and Community Service Year intern will receive a Covid-19 Family Care Package.

"The packages include bleach, hand sanitiser, exercise books, soap, maize flour, rice and beans.

"These are much needed, staple items in a Tanzanian household."

The families will also receive important information about Covid-19 and instructions on how a family can make a simple, inexpensive face-mask at home, how to use the bleach and hand-sanitiser safely and effectively.

"Students will also receive another study pack full of learning resources and work."
