- LOCATION: Iringa, Tanzania
- PROJECT: Women’s Crisis Center
- DIRECTOR: Pastor Berrings and Grace Mlambya
- FINANCIAL GOAL: $5,000 Final renovation and furniture costs for home for unwed mothers
Women in Tanzania are often raped and then abandoned. That means they end up with children to feed and no financial support. We want to provide these vulnerable women a place to heal and to learn skills so they can feed their families. We are working with Pastor Berrings and Grace Mlambya to operate this vital ministry.
In 2018 I visited Pastor Berrings Mlambya, and he shares my burden for abused women because there are so many in his country. We have been able to provide food for many underprivileged women in his community during the pandemic. In 2022 a donor gave us $29,000 to build a shelter for unwed mothers who were trafficked, raped or abused by local men. We later decided to buy an existing building and it is being remodeled. This building was purchased in January 2023.
