Mwagusi Safari Camp supports the Foxes’ Community and Wildlife Conservation Trust (FCWCT), a grassroots initiative of the Fox Family. This NGO aims to provide shelter, sustenance, education and medical care to the increasing number of orphans and foster families in the Mufindi District of Tanzania. As a result of HIV-AIDS many children are left orphaned, or worse left to care and provide for their sick parents, grandparents and younger siblings. To date, the NGO has built and staffed 6 orphanage dormitories and made improvements to local schools and clinics. Now plans are underway to expand the orphans centre to 60 beds, improve education and refurbish educational facilities further. Also to provide outreach services in local villages to AIDS orphans and construct a Counseling and Treatment Center to treat HIV/AIDS patients. Other community projects include: The Kindergarden Outreach Programme. The Igoda Children’s Village and Mdabulo Health Facility.
Foxes Community and Wildlife Conservation Trust is supported in the UK by ‘Orphans in the wild’ and in the USA by ‘Mufindi Orphans’. You can make a donation or offer assistance by contacting either of the following branches. Donations can also be made online at www.wildorphans.org
