Day 1 in Benaco - Gathering with the Elderly, Fleeces & Flip-Flops

Monday June 3rd was Johanna & Sergio's first full day in Benaco, Tanzania. Along with Sr. Dativa, they gathered 15 of the elders in one place to measure and interview them. This is a necessary step for the nutritional study being conducted to measure the effectiveness of The Village Angels of Tanzania's food distributions to the elderly served by the program.

After the measurements, they gave each of the elderly a fleece jacket and a pair of flip-flops. They got back a lot of "Asante sana" (thank you's). Then everyone proceeded on their way home. As you can see, everyone came to the gathering in the best clothes.

The fleece jackets and flip-flops distributed today are from the generous donations by the many supporters of The Village Angels of Tanzania. "Asante sana" to everyone who contributed to make this possible. The fleece jackets will keep the elderly warm on the cool nights in Tanzania. During their stay, Johanna & Sergio will distribute fleece jackets and flip-flops to all the elderly served by The Village Angels of Tanzania.
