£2,100raised of £2,500 target by 58 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,100 to save the legs of Ssemambo Henry, an orphan at Hisani Orphanage in Tanzania, who recently fell in soil covered burning coal.

    Funded on Sunday, 14th January 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Derby Grammar School support Gedeli B school in Mwanza, Tanzania. The children from Hisani Orphanage attend Gedeli B. Ssemambo Henry is a 10 year old orphan at Hisani Orphanage. A week ago, whilst playing football outside the orphanage, he fell in soil covered burning coal. Fred, who is in charge of Hisani orphanage and who helps the DGS students when we visit Mwanza, is pleading for our help. He needs to send Henry to a specialist hospital (Mater Hospital) in Nairobi for treatment "because his wounds are exposed to infections which may lead to amputation of his legs."

    Fred has managed to raise $350 but needs $3800 in order to get this treatment for Henry.

    Any help you can give would be gratefully received.

      Thank you everybody that has donated to help Henry. I have had other donations sent to me and with the amount raised on here, have managed to reach the £2500 target which is amazing. Your kindness and generosity is heartwarming. I am now in the process of closing the page so that I can receive the money to send over. When I visit in the summer, I will get some photos with Henry and find a way to update you all of his condition.

      Central News did a great job today on the story about Henry and I had an immediate £50 donation - thank you. Fred rang me on WhatsApp to say thank you. It was lovely to speak to him. I'm sharing the page again in the hope of more donations. Thank you all x
