Care for Africa

Care for Africa

Care for Africa is an Australian charity that encourages young Australians to include philanthropic endeavour in their lives and think of others less fortunate living in deplorable third-world conditions in Africa. The full name of the group is the Peter Hewitt Care for Africa Foundation Inc. It was formed in 2007 by Diana Morrison and Dr. Peter Hewitt after their visit to Tanzania and Kenya in June 2006.

The Foundation has already participated in several projects in some of the poorest parts of Africa—Tarime in the Mara Region of Tanzania and in Southern Kenya. Many more projects have been identified in these areas, including sending orphans to school, stocking libraries in schools, and providing running water to local health care facilities.

The Foundation's key partner in Tanzania is the Tarime Goodwill Foundation, run by Dr. Hudson Winani. TGF runs one of only two hospitals that serve a population of over 500,000 people.
