At the School of St Jude in Tanzania, the motto is ‘challenge yourself’. As the world faces the collective challenge of COVID-19, St Jude’s are rising to the occasion to make good on their motto!

With many St Jude’s students coming from poor backgrounds with limited access to health care and basic supplies, staff at the school are assembling 1,800 COVID-19 Family Care Packages to distribute. Included are staple items including bleach, hand sanitiser, exercise books, soap, maize flour, rice and beans. They’ll also receive important information about COVID-19 and instructions on how a family can make a simple, inexpensive face mask at home, as well as how to use the bleach and hand sanitiser safely and effectively.

With schools in Tanzania remaining closed until further notice, students will also receive a study pack full of learning resources and work to ensure no St Jude’s student is left behind in their studies.

The NDY Charitable Trust has purchased care packages for families of the students we sponsor. If you’d like to join us in being part of this worthy cause, you can purchase a care package here:
