These mosquito nets, provided by donations from the Stouffville Igoma Partnership, are vital to help prevent malaria in Igoma, Tanzania. One net costs just $4.50. The building in the background is the community’s new mother and child care facility. “Thanks to some special donor support, the septic system is nearly completed, windows are now being installed, and ceramic tiling is under way inside. The building should be ready for use early in the new year,” said SIP chair Peter Neufeld. For more information on donating, call 905-640-3911 ext. 42 or visit sipartnership.org.
