We are getting married on May 18th
We are getting married, and we already experienced deep emotions throughout our entire life. We feel we have been so lucky given we are healthy and we can look at our future with positive feelings. We know this is not the situation for many in Africa who struggle for basic needs such as medical care and proper health cures. For this reason we would like to share our happiness with those that are less lucky than us and who are maybe struggling in their life or having a tough period.
We came to know “Find the cure” during our Trail runs and we immediately created a special bond with this group of highly motivated and generous people and we became their supporters. You can make us a wedding gift helping Find the cure to set-up a Medical care camp in Tanzania, deciding to donate single items or blocks to realize this important project. The entire amount of your donation will be spent for this specific project.
This will be your piece of heart and our part of happiness shared with our less fortunate African brothers and sisters. Thank you for participating in our happiness and for your contribution to this important solidarity project.

The project we have chosen to support:
Medical Camps in Tanzania
In the rural areas of Tanzania, a country where the national health system is fee-charged, no health education is carried out. As a consequence, most people do not go to the hospital, unless they are in a state of the disease so advanced that often becomes incurable.
To counteract this situation and reverse the trend, Medical Camps are held in the rural areas around the village of Msolwa Ujamaa by the staff of the Good Samaritan Hospital along with Find The Cure volunteers.
In the shade of the main village tree or in appropriate structures, the team ensures adequate and timely cares, nursing visits, free medical examinations and free laboratory tests for the main tropical diseases (HIV, Malaria, …).
In addition, the population take part in training lessons on health and hygiene regulations to adopt: the correct use of mosquito nets to prevent malaria, the habit of boiling water before drinking it to prevent typhoid and other gastrointestinal diseases, proper personal hygiene, good eating habits and safe sexual intercourses.
Health education is also aimed at pre-partum and post-partum mothers with the aim of reducing maternal-infant mortality, which is still very high in the country.
