THE STORY:

THE STORY: My name is Andrea Barlow I am a flight attendant in the United States. I travel abroad often. In September I am returning to Moshi Tanzania to volunteer at Simbas footprints. it is a Non profit organization operating with a mission to serve and protect orphans in Moshi Tanzania. (A SMALL GROUP OF CHILDREN ARE BEING CARED FOR AT A REGISTERED CHILDCARE CENTER, SIMBAS FOOTPRINTS CHILDREN’S HOME, WHERE THEY RECEIVE PROTECTION, MEDICAL ATTENTION, EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY, AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FROM QUALIFIED NATIONAL STAFF UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF THE FOUNDERS). I traveled to Moshi Tanzania as a cancer survivor to climb Kilimanjaro previously. I was immediately touched by the needs in this country. From the unclean water and sewage system to the many children who do not have basic needs we so take for granted. Needless to say I came home a different person with a heavy heart. I knew On my plane ride home from KIlimanjaro I wanted to return to this country to give back in any way I could. I am raising money to donate monetary funding to Simbas Footprints, as well return taking gym equipment to them and volunteer a helping hand. My mission is to provide outdoor equipment so these children can play and learn about the importance of taking care of themselfs physically at which time trying to promote confidence in these orphans who have a second chance living in Simbas footprints facility ! I am also traveling with my Friend Erika Wilson a Dental Hygenist from California who is going to speak with them about oral care and take toothbrushes and care packages. The children of this orphanage will be able to take positive steps to a healthy fulfilled future with the generosity of donors, staff and volunteers. Thank you so much for help and donations! no matter how big or small it counts. ❤️ My favorite quote resides with me as I set this page up "I always wondered why somebody didn't do something, then I realized I was somebody" If you have any further questions concerns or would like to help me on my mission please feel free to reach out to me.
