The Orphans Foundation Fund staff met on Friday with leaders of the Muslim community in Mererani Tanzania to discuss plans and organize for the Zaire ward water and sanitation project and funded by the International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF). We talked about forming a balanced committee of both Christians and Muslims and Men and Women to oversea the water distribution. After talking in depth concerning possible conflicts, we were glad to find that the relationship between faiths in the Zaire ward are strong and healthy. Good beginnings to great efforts should lead to excellent results for advancing this community here in Tanzania.
