Adrian and Caroline Strain first went to Tanzania in 2010. They lived in a small government house, very modest in comparison with homes in Europe, but very comfortable when compared with the mud houses most Tanzanians call home.
They discovered that they were living very close to people who struggled even to feed themselves and began with the help of one or two key local people, to support those families with food and household items
They had to find money for school fees and school uniforms and cash to pay doctors and medicines.
They work closely with the Sisters of the Holy Redeemer who have Houses, kindergarten and clinics around the region. Their Regional Superior is Sister Tadea Mpanda.
Sister Tade Mpanda is responsible for the activities of the Sisters of the Holy Redeemer. Approximately sixty nuns teach, farm, and feed local poor people under her direction.
