  • Need


    The hospital is a fundamental part of any community and Samaritans Orphanage require funding to complete the construction. The initial build is underway however extra funding is required to ensure the hospital has doors, electricity fittings (including power sockets and bulbs), a water tank, and toilet fittings (including showers, taps, basins).


    The Jane Metson Foundation is aiming to secure funding that will help the Samaritans Orphanage, a charity partner since the Foundation was created in 2014, complete the necessary works to the community hospital.

  • Aims

    It will have a long term impact on the local community providing care and treatment. We will demonstrate this by receiving regular updates from the Samaritans Orphanage on the impact of the community hospital and will include it in our newsletters to donors and supporters.


    The project may require additional funds but we are working closely with Samaritans Orphanage to enable regular updates on the progress of the construction.

  • Background


    The project is based in Arusha in Northern Tanzania and it is one of the poorest regions of one of the word's poorest countries. The region has a population of around 1.6 million people and is inhabited by various ethnic groups and communities. Living conditions have progressively worsened for the majority of the population, with many people living in slums. As a result, there are many abandoned and orphaned children who do not have the necessary support and care.


    The goal of the project is to reduce the number of abandoned children in the country and to provide them with the necessary care and medical attention. These children tend to have parents who have sadly died or who have abandoned them as they are unable to support them due to widespread poverty. The community hospital will be a fundamental part of this work and will help the orphanage continue its support of these children.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    One of The Jane Metson Foundation's founders and trustees, Stephen Metson, has been a long-term supporter of the Samaritans Orphanage in Tanzania and has carried out charity work on location with his wife. As a result, The Foundation has strong ties with the work currently taking place and has the necessary knowledge to know where the right support is needed. The Jane Metson Foundation also has no running costs and so all money raised can be used for this project.
