Tanzania: A car for the parish of Mlevela

Tanzania: A car for the parish of Mlevela

The parish of Mlevela is still very young, having been established only in 2017. It is situated some 10 miles (15 km) west of Njombe, where the bishop resides, and has 11 outstations. These villages lie anything up to 20 miles (30 km) from the centre of the parish.

Without a car, the work of the parish is almost impossible. All the Catholic faithful, including those in the outlying villages, long to be able attend Holy Mass. Moreover, there are seven primary schools and two higher schools in the parish, where the priest and his catechists have to give religious instruction. And often there are sick and elderly people to be visited, funerals to be held and all manner of other tasks to be done as well in the villages.

ACN was able to contribute 24,700 Euros so that the parish could obtain a robust all-terrain vehicle.

Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors, ACN was able to contribute 24,700 Euros so that the parish could obtain a robust all-terrain vehicle, strong enough to cope with the difficult road conditions. The vehicle has now arrived safely in Mlevela and been joyously welcomed by all the people. The parish priest, Father Bruno Henjewele, and all the faithful want to say a heartfelt thank you to all our generous benefactors for their kind support.
