Quote over Driving Nurses

The start of our mission in Tanzania

Our history began with the tragic loss of our daughter, Mila Lilu, to a severe brain condition. In 2012, the chairperson visited an impoverished community south of Moshi, Tanzania, aiming to enhance maternal and child care. Deeply moved by the dire conditions and the loss of many young lives due to preventable issues, she was inspired to take action.
