When we built those first few houses back in 2008 we had no idea we were starting a program. Â Even when we formalized Houses for Health as a partnership program of Alegent Health and the Nebraska Synod – ELCA we had no idea how much the program would steadily grow. We never would have dared to think that we would ever build more than a few houses a year….and yet here we are with our 50th house finished and more in the works . . Dare we hope to one day reach 100? Â Or is that even thinking too small? Â Great thanks go to all individuals, families & friends, businesses, church groups, Â and others who have been supporting this effort.
House # 50 goes to the family of Eonike Urasa and her children in the Machame subvillage of Nkuu. Â Maybe it is fitting that the donor for this home is the President and CEO of Alegent Health: Â Mr Richard Hachten and his wife Jeanine. Â Thank you Rick for being so supportive of Alegent’s involvement in Tanzania these past 11 years!
