Sandy wrote that Moses Matonya’s sister’s baby died of Malaria the day before Christmas at 8 months of age. The baby was burried on Christmas Day. It stuns to think that in this day and age, babies are dying of a preventable disease, but because of the lack of nearby medical care it is happening all the time. I know Moses’ sister, and I cannot imagine how she will recover from this loss and I grieve for her and her family.

KARIMU will check to see if there are enough mosquito nets in the village, and if not be sure they will be able to buy what they need.

I hope that 2013 will be a good year for everyone, and thank you all so much for your support for the people in Tanzania! Jessie
