Getting Hamisi back on track

July was a bit of a curveball month for Hamisi, who is one of our scholarship students from Mahale attending a school in Dar es Salaam. In a dramatic turn of events, the school caught fire, and although no one was hurt, the students lost all of their belongings – books, clothes, personal possessions... the lot.

Hamisi, along with the rest of his fellow boarders, was left with just the clothes that he was wearing when he was evacuated. Wanting to get him back on track, we helped him with some resupplies, and he has now gone back to a nearby school where the students will continue their studies until their school is patched up and ready to welcome them back.
