Speaking at the handing over of a donation from Sayed Corporation Limited to the Victoria Foundation, Dr Mwinyi said the needs of these vulnerable children outstrip the existing infrastructure and financial capacity of the government. “Tanzania’s is very huge with a population of over 45 million.
There is no way that the government could take care of all the needy children on its own. “This is where organisations, be it NGOs, faith-based groups and individuals should come up and give the government a helping hand,” he said.
The Managing Director of Sayed Corporation Limited, Sayed Masoud, said the 10m/- cheque and 30 bicycles his company donated to Victoria Foundation is a first step towards future support to the Foundation.
He said his company urged Victoria Foundation management to observe honesty and diligence when handling the aid extended to the foundation by ensuring that it reaches the targeted groups.
Ms Vicky Kamata, the founder and Chairperson of the Foundation, expressed her gratitude to Sayed Corporation for the support, assuring the donors that the aid would help the foundation attain its objectives. According to Ms Kamata, the Geita Based Foundation which currently takes care of 32 children, strives to improve the quality of life and advance the rights of the children and the youth.
