  • Antony, 2013.


This little boy originates from just outside Moshi about 45 km to the east of us.  Having lost both of his parents, Antony was bounced from family member to member until he finally returned to his village and his grandmother who continued to raise him.  Left with an untended ear infection Antony lost his hearing (completely in one and partially in the other ear), and although rich in love (and bananas which were the family business), there simply was not enough money for treatment . . . nor school.

Story of Antony

DOB – “August 23”, 1998

Came under Tumaini care January, 2012!

We met Antony in 2011 and began treating and providing care for him.  He was infested with chiggers (he slept beside his bibi’s (grandmother’s) animals) and without hearing of any kind in one ear.  We had him treated by a specialist, cleaned him up and found him a special school for the hearing impaired south of Moshi.  Antony, with his hearing improved, was brought to Tumaini in 2012 and continues to thrive.
