Supporting the St Jude’s community during COVID-19
Like the rest of the world, COVID-19 is having a devastating impact on our students and their families as many of them come from poor backgrounds with limited access to health care and basic supplies. Since schools have been closed since 18 March, our staff united and found an innovative solution to support students and families during this time. We prepared and distributed over 2,000 COVID-19 Family Care Packages to all our students and interns. We hope we can continue to help our students and their families face the growing threat of COVID-19 in Tanzania and fight this crisis with strength and resilience.
