Wentworth Africa Foundation accomplished a lot in 2022. We impacted more than 10,000 people with our programs. We launched our 4th flagship program to support a children’s cancer ward in Tanzania and were able to hold a fundraising event in Cape Town, South Africa. In addition to the projects, Wentworth Africa Foundation also launched a new Logo and website in 2022.


Children’s Cancer Support

At the Muhimbili National Hospital, WAF has partnered with Tumaini la Maisha (TLM ‘hope for life’), a non-governmental organisation that is dedicated to caring for children with cancer.

TLM provides chemotherapy and psychosocial therapies, and we support the organisation so that it can continue providing its services free of charge.

WAF is also supporting TLM to expand its network by funding TLM’s National Children Cancer Network (NCCN) expansion program. The program’s aim is to reach every child in Tanzania suffering from childhood cancer. The goal is to ensure treatment is available within a 4-hour drive from the child’s home.

Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation (Hospital) in Tanzania (CCBRT)

Each year in Tanzania, 11,000 women die due to complications from pregnancy and childbirth, and 66,000 babies do not survive their first month of life.

WAF has supported the CCBRT Maternity & Newborn Ward which aims at providing specialist care for high-risk and emergency maternity cases, including mothers with disabilities, histories of fistula, and adolescents.

Our support helps CCBRT’s efforts to prevent disability; increase access to emergency obstetric care; prevent disability in newborns; and minimize long-term disability for babies born with impairment, or mothers who suffer childbirth injuries by providing prompt diagnosis and immediate referral to CCBRT’s Disability Hospital for treatment.
