KIDS for KIDS with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus

Charity Concert for Haydom´s children with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.

Incredible awesome initiative of the Rudolf-Steiner-Schule Bergedorf. Students of the Rudolf Steiner Schule organized a wonderful concert to collect funds for children born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus in Haydom, Tansania.
I think we “grown ups” can only learn from such an outstanding gesture of humanity. Asante sana – Vielen Dank! If you want to follow their BIG FOOTSTEPS help us with your donation at

International Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Day

For the very first time ever parents, children, hospital staff and the Haydom Community came together to march for Haydoms kids with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus – Against wrong beliefs and false knowledge. More than 200 people got together to walk together, creating awareness for better education and better medical treatment and coverage. The Motto “Tupige Vita tumani potofu ” Against wrong beliefs was written all over our T-Shirts that we all were proudly wearing. For the first time the local Media was with us and the initiative was screened in the National News for over a week. What a great achievement in creating Awareness even on a National Level. Well Done TEAM HAYDOM !!!

Mount Meru Charity Hike January 18th-27th, 2020 – Be there!

In order to lay the foundations, we plan a joint hike on Mount Meru from 18.-27.January 2020. Together with parents, the local team and the supporters of the project, we want to climb the summit and collect money for the construction. Everyone is welcome. The cost for the 10-day trip includes the 4-day hike including hotel costs, full board and the subsequent joint trip to Haydom to the place where the House of Hope is to arise. In Haydom itself, in addition to the visit of the unique Hadzabe Bush people, some local culture and tradition, also the exploration of the clinic and a meeting of the parents with their children are planned. Again, travel, accommodation, and meals are included.

The pure travel costs amount to p.P. to 1500 euros, in addition come p.P. 1000 Euros to be spent on the construction of the House of Hope. Each participant can also have this donation sub-amount financed by a personal sponsor or a self-initiated donation call.

Anyone who can not climb the mountain on his own is still welcome to help. You can use your donation to sponsor a local participant, a parent, or a patient, giving him the chance to have a very special and important experience in their lives, for the courage and new strength to achieve something great in community. Set a sign with us together.
