WHO WE ARE
“MaishaMema Foundation Tanzania” is a charitable non-profit–organization located at Grabs/Switzerland and Tanzania. The organization is politically and denominationally independent but based on Christian values. The organization aims to achieve the support and improvement of the people’s better health in Tanzania, including construction, operation and organization of a nursing department, self-help groups, educational health related courses, prevention programmes, obtaining of medicine and establishment of health facilities in the country. The organization is neither commercially nor profitably oriented.
In April 2014, founder Bettina Kuria travelled to Bukoba and discovered that the Region of Kibanga has the largest number of Malaria-cases in Tanzania as well it is challenged with perennial waterborne diseases and other transmittable diseases. The level of poverty is high in Kibanga and people often can’t afford fundamental health care. This led her and her colleagues to the vision of building a dispensary, accessible for everybody, regardless of his or her wealth. In 2016 the NGO Maisha Mema Foundation was funded. After that land was bought and the construction process started. In 2019 the doors of the dispensary finally opened. .
Maisha Mema Foundation Tanzania envisions a future where rural, under-served communities have access to quality health care services based on respect and dignity towards improving livelihoods.
